SERVICE THROUGH PRAYER

Prayer is perhaps the most essential tool we have to discern the will of God and to succeed in whatever task He gives us. No Christian community can function without it, and the St. Teresa of Avila parish needs your prayers to heal the sick, uplift the poor, promote world peace, protect the sanctity of life, and encourage vocations in the Catholic Church.

Brothers in Faith
Brothers in Faith comprises a group of men who meet at 8:30 a.m. at the Parish Office on Saturday to reflect and share on the Sunday readings. For information, contact Wes Wensek.


Nocturnal Adoration
Nocturnal Adoration involves an assembly of men, women, and children who meet in church on the first Friday of every month to spend an hour in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament exposed on the altar. For information, contact Mike Clemens.

Prayer for Peace
This powerful, daily prayer for peace (link) can be prayed right in your home at whatever time best fits your schedule. There are three adaptations of the prayer: for young children, for middle grades and teens, and for adults. For information, contact Sister Marilyn.

POWERFUL PRAYER
 
The Catechism of the Catholic Church tells us that Prayer and Christian life are inseparable, for they concern the same love and the same renunciation, proceeding from love; the same filial and loving conformity with the Father's plan of love; the same transforming union in the Holy Spirit who conforms us more and more to Christ Jesus; the same love for all men, the love with which Jesus has loved us.

Jesus also prays for us - in our place and on our behalf. All our petitions were gathered up, once for all, in his cry on the Cross and, in his Resurrection, heard by the Father. This is why he never ceases to intercede for us with the Father.

If our prayer is resolutely united with that of Jesus, in trust and boldness as children, we obtain all that we ask in his name, even more than any particular thing: the Holy Spirit himself, who contains all gifts.
