” We set forth our petitions before God, not in order to make known to Him our needs and desires, but rather so that we ourselves may realize that in these things it is necessary to turn to God for help. “
– St Thomas Aquinas
Our work at Cross Catholic Outreach begins each day in communal prayer. On Tuesdays, ministry staff spends the first hour of the workday praying for the specific intentions of our donors. We consider it an honor and a privilege to intercede for our friends and supporters. If you or someone you love needs prayer, please fill out the form below. We would love to pray for you.
Prayer for Donors
God and Father, Sustainer and Giver of all life,
We come before you today in obedience with thankful hearts for what you have done through each and every one of our donors, whom you empower to bless the poor.
We thank you for their faithful and sacrificial giving, and we ask that you continue to bless and protect them.
We also thank you for the privilege of serving as your instrument to minister to the poorest of the poor. As you continue to move on the hearts of your people to faithfully give, we pray you grant wisdom to the leaders of this organization to be faithful stewards of your resources, so that we can play our part in fulfilling your holy mandate of serving orphans, widows and those in desperate need.
We ask all these things in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit — now and always.
Prayer for God’s Peace, Protection, Provision & Presence During this Pandemic
We acknowledge that you, our God and Father of all, are above all and through all and in all.
Therefore, we trust you and thank you in all circumstances.
Lord, we humbly petition your favor during these challenging times,
Upon our partners overseas, our donors here at home, and our Cross family.
Where fear tries to pervade, may your peace overcome.
Where illness tries to invade, may your protection overrule.
Where poverty tries to deplete, may your provision overflow.
Where isolation tries to defeat, may your presence overwhelm.
With gratitude, we ask this in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Protection from Storms
God our Father, Creator of the Universe, you have set the earth upon its foundation and all the elements of nature obey your command.
We humbly come before you as your children in thanksgiving for your loving care and protection.
Keep us and our ministry partners safe from all hurricanes and storms which may threaten us this season.
You alone have the power to command the wind, the rains and the seas. You alone bring peace, calm, and safety and you are our refuge.
Father, we thank you in advance and ask this through Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
