New Evangelization Novena: God gives us the tools we need to evangelize

Novena Day 4: God gives us the tools we need to evangelize

God gives us the tools we need to evangelize

It can be intimidating for Catholics to begin evangelizing. What are the right words to say? Who should we talk to? Will we be able to answer questions and have genuine conversations about Jesus with the people we reach? While these are normal questions to have, we can take comfort in the fact that we don't have to rely just on ourselves. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we receive the graces needed to evangelize. All we need to do is to let the Holy Spirit in.

Opening Prayer

Lord God, we ask you to pour out your blessings on your Church as we answer your call to the New Evangelization. Grant us the grace to proclaim the Gospel to those who have not yet heard it and to those who have strayed from you, especially through the use of television in CatholicTV’s mission. Help us to see new ways to use the tools of our time to spread your Word to all people. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Scripture

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” – Acts 1:8

Prayer

Lord Jesus, you give us everything we need to fulfill the mission to which you have called us. By the power of the Holy Spirit, guide our words and actions to turn our hearts fully to you and bring others to do the same. Amen.
