Bishop Joe Grech’s prayer

Loving God

I thank you God for wanting me from eternity to become like you. Help me to always remember who I am. Help me to understand deep down within me that I am never alone. You are there with me. Help me to experience more and more your life-giving presence within me so that I will continue to be a powerful witness of your presence to those whom I meet. Help me to persevere and to understand that difficulties and problems are moments of growth and maturity rather than moments of discouragement and a reason to give up. Jesus gives us a heart that loves like you, feels like you, understands like you, thinks like you and behaves like you. Amen.

( Bishop Joe Grech: Homily 2010)


Another prayer of Bishop Joe

Lord Jesus,

I thank you for my life and for all the good qualities

that you have gifted me with.

I thank you for friendships, family life and for so many opportunities to grow.

I thank you for inviting me to walk closely with you and to continue

to proclaim and deepen what you stand for;

love, justice and peace.

Thank you for living with me through your Holy Spirit

and encouraging, loving, forgiving, healing and empowering me.

Touch my heart and renew me with your presence.

Fill me with joy.

Continue to mould and nurture me,

so that I will never be afraid to respond

to the needs of others and your world,

and to turn to you in times of difficulty and distress.

I trust you with my past life,

my present situation and with my future.

Today I decide again to accept you

and you alone as my God.

I truly desire to k now you better. Amen.

(Bishop Joe’s prayer for YOUNG PEOPLE, WYD 2008 [Sydney]
