Prayer Request Form
April 1, 2015
Good morning Notre Dame,
Please stand for our Morning Prayer and Pledge of Allegiance.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit! Amen.
Today is traditionally known as Spy Wednesday, for it is the day that Judas begins looking for an opportunity to betray Jesus. He had not given in so much to outward opposition to the Gospel, but to the subtle variations of trend and mood swings of the crowd. Betrayal doesn’t happen suddenly but rather gradually. Betrayal consists in the unwillingness to change for Jesus Christ. Betrayal happens when we start to make compromises in our lives, when we fail to pray, when we cater to the lies of the world. Betrayal festers through our complaining, self-indulgence, passive-aggressiveness, anxiety, and jealousy. Betrayal reigns when we think we’ve got it all figured out. The opposite of betrayal is affirmation.
We pray for the soul of Jan Killian, Alumni Parent; may she rest in peace. We pray a special intention for two of our own lunch attendants, Joann Manolis - that her knee surgery goes well and she recovers quickly and for Joseph Zaccagnini the husband of Annett Zaccagnini another lunch room attendant who is having surgery today. We continue to pray for all of those in our community and for those listed in our Book of Intentions.
Let us pray. You saved us from death by your death, O Lord.
You raised us to life by your rising. Deepen your people’s communion with you in life and in death through our observance of Lent, you who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, One God forever and ever. Amen.
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit! Amen.
Notre Dame, pray for us.
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
This is the time of Easter eggs, bunnies, spring, and being with family. Enjoy your Easter break, Dons!
