LET ME BE THE BEARER OF YOUR LOVE
(A prayer of a consecrated person to God)
Words & Music: Fr. Nino T. Andrade, OSA
Every day I sing to You with all my heart,
Hear my pray'r, I raise them all into Your hands.
Come to me and keep me safe in your arms,
Strengthen me to face the day,
For You I stand
Even there is sadness, stay with me
And fill me with your joy endlessly.
Lord, help me understand,
To follow your commands.
I entrust my life into your care.
My Lord, fill me with your love,
Fill me with your truth,
Fill me with your kindness.
My Lord, let your goodness shine.
Let me speak your truth.
Let me be the bearer of your love
Every day, Let me proclaim and testify,
In your word, Show me your way,
For you are light.
You alone can bring all wonders in this life.
Heal all wounds and take all worries I hide.
Even there is darkness, stay with me
And in your hands I hold faithfully.
Lord, fill your grace inside,
Grant me what you desire.
I raise all my voice, Lord, sing with me.
FATHER, BLESS THEM
(A Prayer of the Lay Faithful for Clergy and Consecrated Persons)
Words and music by Fr. Carlo MagnoS. Marcelo
Almighty Father, our hearts lift to you
your loving servants, Lord,
you know them through and through.
Ordained, blessed, consecrated to you,
they are serving us and teaching us your Truth.
And as Jesus showed us when he washed their feet,
hetold them: ‘Do the same to all that you meet.’
In this time of change and uncertainty,
webeg you, we lift this prayer to you:
bless them, heal them, restore them,renew them.
These we ask for your laborers, O Lord.
call them, inflame them, empower them,send them
as they lift once more their ‘Yes’ to you
for the laborers of your vineyard, Lord,
are here now before you.
They’re not perfect at all
but their hearts beat for you.(Repeat C)
forgive them, guide them, protect them, embrace them
as they walk with you….
as they pray to you…
as they give their ‘Yes’ once more….to you.
Father, bless them.
