Prayer for the Youth

Almighty and Gracious God, our youth cry out to You as Your children, and we humbly turn to You in prayer, that we may not sin towards our brothers or sisters, and bring inner wrath with our souls by provoking either hatred, or mistrust towards one another. We seek the guidance of Your commandments, harmony with our families and our friends. O All-merciful Lord, Who loves us all, help us, and guides us to truly give and receive compassion, and deliver us from the evils that may tempt us! Grant us Your inner peace and watch over us, guiding us always with Your Right Hand and protecting us under the shelter of Your Holy Spirit. Enlighten us as we pray to You in the illuminating light of the Holy Gospel. Warm our hearts with Your grace that we may humbly glorify Your Holy Name, of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen!
