ACYF prayer

Whether you are able to join us in Perth or not, we invite all to prayer for the success of the Australian Catholic Youth Festival. The official prayer is below:
ACYF 2019 Prayer  
Holy Spirit, Breath of God, you come to us in the stillness and silence of this Great South Land.
Give us the courage to open our hearts and ears, to listen to your voice as we seek to foster the growth of your Church in Australia.
Grant us the desire to know Jesus and say our ‘Yes’ to his invitation to spread the joy of the Gospel.
We ask for the gift of hope as you guide us in our search for purpose and meaning in our lives.
We pray together as young people that we may love and care for all of creation.
We make this prayer through Jesus Christ our Lord, our brother and our companion, who lives with You and the Father forever and ever.
