Re: opening prayer for rcia class
I also get nervous when put on the spot this way, but also very old fashioned and grateful that the prayers of the Church say what should be said better than anything I could dream up on the fly. Since the candidates are in the process of learning the formal prayers we begin every class with OF HM and GB, and add the apostle's creed when we begin discussing the elements of the creed.
before BOW or when we are studying scripture in any other context, we pray the short prayer to the Holy Spirit.
Whatever the Lord pleases He does, on heaven and on earth, in the seas and all deeps. Ps. 135
