A Prayer to Begin Each Day

The final stage of any journey is often vulnerable to the worst temptations to turn back.
During the final three weeks of Lent,

in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults,

we pray with special care for those preparing for Baptism

at the Easter Vigil.

Using the gospels for those Sundays,

which are our readings for this week in our retreat,

the Christian Community prays for those preparing for Baptism,

that they be protected and freed from evil

and given the gifts they long for.

We have adapted these special prayers to the first person

so we could make them our own prayer.

We Thirst for Living Water

We Desire to Pass from Darkness to Light

We Long for New Life
