Prayer of the Carmelite Family

Tender-hearted God,

Renew the gifts of the Holy Spirit within the Carmelite Family, as we seek to live following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. Teach us, like Mary, to contemplate your wisdom. Fill us, like Elijah, with zeal for your glory. Inspire us, like Simon Stock, to ponder your will in times of change. Like Teresa, John, Therese and Titus, may we always live in the presents and make us prophets of your kingdom. May our lives of prayer, community and service be a sign to the world that God lives, in whose presence we stand. This grace we ask in Jesus’ name.
