A prayer for our nation

Let us proclaim the name of the Lord
And ascribe greatness to our God!

Lord your work is perfect.
And all your ways are just.

Let Your voice be heard today
by all the nations!

O God, Judge of the nations,
Put fear into our hearts
So that we may know that we are only human.

Father, the whole of creation groans and labours
to be delivered from the bondage of corruption,
into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Lord Jesus, send forth Your Spirit of Truth and
let this Spirit prove to ‘the powers that be’ how
wrong they are about sin, righteousness and judgement.

O Lord, declare the power of your works to
Your peoples and let us be filled with the knowledge of Your glory
as the waters cover the sea.

Gather us O Lord in Your name and may all
worship the One True God. Amen.

NOTE : Cathedral of the Holy Spirit, Penang will hold a special mass on Monday, 15th September 2008 at 8.00 pm. Father FA announced this at the 7am mass on Saturday morning and urged all Catholics to come. (This is not included in the bulletin as it was too late to be included in this week issue. So, please pass the word around.)
