                Teach me to pray

Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray;

This is my heart-cry day unto day;

I long to know Thy will and Thy way;

Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray.

Power in prayer, Lord, power in prayer!

Here ’mid earth’s sin and sorrow and care,

Men lost and dying, souls in despair;

O give me power, power in prayer!

My weakened will, Lord, Thou canst renew;

My sinful nature Thou canst subdue;

Fill me just now with power anew;

Power to pray and power to do!

Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray;

Thou art my pattern day unto day;

Thou art my surety, now and for aye;

Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray.

Vocations to the priesthood

‘Jesus, master; take pity on us!’ is the cry of the ten lepers. They see in Jesus the chance of healing, reconciliation and a new life. The beauty of Christ is irresistible when people meet it face to face. The function and duty of the priest is to make this possible by the preached word and sacraments. If you have considered your life in service of God and his people as a priest in the Diocese of Meath contact Fr Shane Crombie in Navan frshane@gmail.com or Fr Joe Campbell in Mullingar frjoecampbell@gmail.com for confidential and non-committed information.
