Novena for the Youth
InactiveFor World Youth Days 2019, let us entrust our youth to God's care. During nine days, we will be covering them with prayers!
From Jan 23 to Jan 31, 2019 - Every day
Pray for the youth!
In today's troubled world, our youth is more than ever in need of guidance and protection. Who better than our Lord can protect and guide them? For nine days, join us as we pray for our children, teens, and young adults.
Throughout this Novena, we will be offering prayers and meditations, and highlight patron saints of the youth, most of them being young saints our youth can emulate or pray to. You may submit the names of your young relatives in the comments section if you wish so, we will lift them in our daily prayers.
The Novena is illustrated with the ravishing artwork of Christopher Santer, artist and illustrator of the book "I am going". He graciously gave permission to use his artwork, and I encourage you to check it out on his website, Pacem Studio.

Prayer for our Youth
We offer you, Loving God, the gifts and needs of youth. Bless them with your guiding grace as they face the challenges and opportunities in their lives. Touch their hearts with the gentleness of your love, that they may know they are valued and valuable beings. Send your spirit of hope to their lives, that they may believe in themselves and know they are needed in this world. Grace them with the gift of joy that they may celebrate life through laughter and tears alike. Guide us, as we continue to grow in appreciation of the many gifts of young people, in the ministry opportunities we offer to them, in the journey of faith we walk with them, in our shared mission as a community called to discipleship in the world. We ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.
