Prayer for Our Nation

We hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July holiday filled with what is most important to you. Although our celebrations may have been limited by safety restrictions due to Covid-19, God's mercy remains without bounds.

He has been on this challenging journey with us and we trust He has with you too. He is listening and guiding us through the power and work of the Holy Spirit. 

God our Father, giver of life, we entrust the United States of America to your loving care. You are the rock on which this nation was founded. You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Reclaim this land for your glory and dwell among your people.

Send your Spirit to touch the hearts of our nation's leaders. Open their minds to the the great worth of human life and the responsibilities that accompany human freedom. Remind your people that true happiness is rooted in seeking and doing your will. Amen.

CFNEK: Catholic Education

As we continue to distribute scholarship grants to schools for the benefit of students this summer, we can't help but to say a prayer with each one. We know there is much uncertainty on how our Catholic schools will reopen safely, and how students and parents will adjust accordingly. Please know we are praying for school leaders, families, and our Catholic school students.
