OYYAM Prayer

Join us in a unified prayer, wherever you are, at 1pm each Monday for the youth of our diocese.
(Set an alarm if you need to!)


We offer to you, Loving God, the gifts and needs of the youth of the Diocese of Erie.

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.
