Almighty God, Father of us all, you know us.
You know our priests, bishops,
and our congregations across Canada
and the United States of America.
You have planted us beside the still waters.
And now Father, we ask for your blessing on us
as we prepare to go to the cities
and to the small hamlets across our nations
with the Gospel of our Lord, Jesus Christ,
evangelizing and planting churches
to glorify your holy name
through your beloved son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.
