Prayer Requests

As members of the Body of Christ, we are all called to support missionaries throughout the world so that all might come to know the mercy and love or our Lord Jesus Christ.  As part of your support for foreign missionaries, we ask that you regularly pray for the St. Francis Xavier Lay Missionary Society.
 

For additional ways to support our ministry, please consider donating your financial gifts so that we may continue to spread the peace, hope, joy and love of our Risen Lord Jesus Christ.  Come join us!



Lord of All Nations, 
We thank you for giving us the command
to proclaim Your message of compassion to all people.
Bless all missionaries, called to this unique work
of proclaiming Your Name to foreign lands. 
May your Spirit of Providence be with the 
ST. FRANCIS XAVIER LAY MISSIONARY SOCIETY. 
Bring them holy men and women
dedicated to spreading Your good news,
the opportunity to do Your work
and the fortitude & grace to bring Your Name to all. 
Through Christ Our Lord. 
AMEN.
