Went to the site but not sure what this is about. However…for all concerned

Spirit of divine Love

Holy Spirit, You proceed uncreated from Father and Son, as their eternal Love. Spirit of Love please flood us with God’s love, for Saint Paul assures us that “The love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us.” [Romans 5:5]

Through Baptism and Confirmation, You empower us as messengers of God’s word. Through You, the living Word of God flows out from the Church to the world. The word proclaimed in the liturgy before the worshipping assembly of the Church, disseminates through Your power. You, who spoke through the prophets, please continue to speak God’s word in our lives.

Through You, we receive faith that empowers us to fulfil God’s law of love. Give us trust, hope and wisdom that enable Your love to permeate our lives.

Give us grace to accept Your inspiration and guidance in the Church, for You use Scripture, the Sacraments, and the teachings and precepts of the Church to instruct, enlighten, and encourage, to admonish and guide us.

With Spirit-filled discussion and reflection, You deepen our insight of truth in tradition, faith and morals. Your ministers are successors to the apostles and prophets. Please keep them faithful to gospel truth.

Let joy and peace, which is fruit of Your love, fill our hearts, spilling into others’ lives. We give praise and thanks, Holy Spirit that You share God’s life and being with us. March 1999 [Inspiration drawn from Documents of Vatican 2—62; 81: 2a 4, 3a 7; 104:13; 114 Part 2:1:13]

For our Christian brothers in the Lutheran church whose faith has been upended with the latest doctrinal changes, may they be lead to the truth…and the truth is the Lord. We ask all these prayers through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Hail Mary,
full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

Lord, I am very, very saddened by what I read in this article referring to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America succumbing to heresey. Please, do not let the heresy in the Lutheran Church deceive the innocent souls in their congregations who can not distinguish heresy from truth. Help those outside the Lutheran Church not to be influenced by this heretical movement either. I pray that the Church Militant fights against these heresies with full armor and strength and wins over many souls who are decieved by these wolves in sheeps’ clothing teaching dangerous heresy opposed to the divine law. Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayer. Amen.
