Let Us Pray

NCCW Centennial Prayer

Heavenly Father,

we give You thanks and praise for the
National Council of Catholic Women’s
100 years of service to the
Universal Church.

We are thankful for the
Bishops who founded NCCW in 1920
and for the beautiful and inspiring
legacy provided by our leaders,
Spiritual Advisors, and NCCW sisters
who have preceded us.

We give thanks to
Our Lady of Good Counsel
for guiding us to be loving and
courageous leaders in building
the Kingdom of God.

Lord, we pray that You stir the hearts
of all Catholic women
to realize the value of serving
Your Church and society
through membership in the NCCW.

Bless us with many more workers in
the vineyard as we embark
on our next century of
Spirituality, Leadership and Service.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ,
your Son, who lives and reigns
with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.


Prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel

God of heavenly wisdom                    You have given us Mary, Mother of Jesus,to be our guide and counselor.

Grant that we may always seek her motherly help in this life
and so enjoy her blessed presence in the life to come.

O Mother of Good Counsel, Patroness of the National Council of Catholic Women,intercede for us, that we may be wise, courageous and loving leaders of the Church,

Help us, dear mother, to know the mind of Jesus, your son.

May the Holy Spirit fill us with reverence for God’s creation,
and compassion for all God’s Children.

May our labors of love on earth enhance the reign of God
and may God’s gifts of faith and living hope prepare us for the fullness of the world to come.

Care of Creation Prayer

Heavenly Father,

In the beginning, You created the heavens and the earth, light and dark, sky and waters, plants, birds and creatures of the sea, living animals of all types and then male and female in the image of You.

With all that was created you were pleased and saw that it was all very good.  Millions of years have passed since and mankind has not treated Your creation well.

Help us to be more aware of our use of resources and the products we choose so that we do not harm  Mother Earth any further and so that we care for Your creation as You desire.  Primarily, help us to love each other so that we respect one another in all actions and value all human life from conception to natural death.
