Prayer for the Conversion of America / Philippines
READING Acts 2:42-47
And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And fear came upon every soul; and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common; and they sold their possessions and goods and distributed them to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they partook of food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
PRAYER OF THE DAY
Let us pray.
O Lord Jesus Christ, grant unto all Your servants, but especially to the people of our own nation, the grace of being fully united with thee in Your Church. O divine Redeemer, of whom the prophet sang “all the kings of the earth shall adore Him, and all the nations shall serve Him,” extend Your Kingdom over the entire human race, but especially over our own beloved country. Grant in Your Mercy that the people of our land may be converted unto You, and humbly and lovingly serve You. This we ask, O Savior, through the intercession of Your Immaculate Mother, the patroness and protector of our nation. Amen.
