U.S. Bishops' Prayer for Young Adults

Gracious and Loving God,
Help these young men and women to be a light 

for all the world to see, 
in all the places they live and work. Let their light shine for all peoples: 
for their families, 
for their church communities, 
for their cultures and societies, 
for the economic and political systems, 
for the whole world. 
Coming into the room where the disciples were gathered after the resurrection, 
"Jesus, your son, said: Peace be with you!" (Jn 20:21). 
Make these men and women bearers 

of Christ's peace. 
"Blessed are the peacemakers, 
Teach them the meaning of what was said 

on the mountain: 
for they shall be called sons and daughters of God" (cf. Mt 5:9). 
Send them, Father, as you sent your son:
to free their brothers and sisters from fear and sin. 
We ask this of you, in Christ's name.
