Opening prayer

therese2

St. Therese, beloved friend, we come before you in our need. We believe that you listen to us and approach God for and with us. Please accept these petitions, hopes, needs, and dreams I list below. Please present them to our Loving Father so that God may do what is best for us, for our loved ones, and for the fulfillment of God's Kingdom. We ask you, dear friend, with the bold confidence and loving surrender you taught us. We make this prayerful petition in the name of Jesus and through the power of His Spirit.

St. Therese hears our requests and intercedes with God on our behalf. She showers us with roses every day, and we continue to be blessed and have prayers answered because of the intercession of our "little flower". St. Therese's own desire was to "make God known and Loved until the consummation of the ages". By sharing your words of thanks, you too, are fulfilling St. Therese's own mission. What a wonderful way to spread the word of God and St. Therese to the world!
