Almighty Father, in the richness of Your mercy, You sent Your only begotten Son to us to suffer and die on the Cross to save and grant us redemption. Your sending Him to us is the ultimate sign of Your inexhaustible love and mercy. His suffering and crucifixion on the Cross gave us redemption for our souls. And as we gather once again in praise and worship at the upcoming 2016 “A HEART RICH IN MERCY” Conference in New York City, we lift up to You this national undertaking of the CFC FFL Handmaids for Family and Life USA. We ask that You to send all Your holy angels and saints to stay with us before, during and after the conference weekend of September 30 to October 2, 2016.
Most merciful Jesus, we just can’t thank You enough for Your obedience to Your Father for Your great sacrifice in Calvary to expiate us for our sins and transgressions. We truly praise and honor You for forgiving Your crucifiers even before You finally closed Your eyes in Calvary. We just pray that we reciprocate Your benevolence with united hearts and minds in all aspects of the conference details. We pray that we will continue to adhere to our covenant to bring more souls for Your kingdom through our weekly household meetings, Christian life seminars and Live Christ Share Christ programs. We will strive to be Your witnesses in all facets of our lives – family, friends and Church.
Holy Spirit, we ask that You fill us with the fire of your mercy! Help us to believe that with God, nothing is impossible! Let the richness of Your merciful heart overflow into the deepest recesses of our hearts’ moans and cares, that Your spirit will empower our actions and wisdom with complete trust and confidence in Your love. Prepare our hearts in this Conference as we savor the tenderness of Your compassion. We are fully aware that there will be challenges that will come our way but we will overcome because of Your Holy Spirit.
Triune God, as we prepare this Year’s 2016 HFL USA Conference, we consecrate our mind, body and soul to Your divine mercy. We ask that You bless the grounds and premises of the La Guardia Plaza Hotel and make it a haven of peace, love and understanding. We lift up to you the personal resources of our HFL sisters that they may have the means to attend the Conference – physically, materially, financially but most of all spiritually. We ask these through the loving embrace of our Blessed Mother Mary who endured the extreme pain of seeing the agony of her son Jesus Christ at the foot of the Cross! Amen.
