Eternal Father, I place before you all the men and women who have responded to your call to help those in need regardless of race or creed or nationality, in all parts of the world especially those who work in aid agencies where the need is greatest. Strengthen their faith and their witness to Your Love. Help them to help others and to spread the Good News.
God of truth and love; Father Son and Holy Spirit,
Hear our prayer for those who do not know You.
That they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church; raise up new missionaries who will follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness; full of love, strength and faith – for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world.
Through the prayers of St. Paul, St. Francis Xavier
And all the missionary saints, have mercy on us and save us.
