“Teach me to pray, Lord. Teach me to pray in your name, to pray with faith, to pray unceasingly. Teach me to pray for the people you have entrusted to my care. You want to shower your graces down upon them, and you are just waiting for me to open up the faucet by my sincere, trusting prayers. In your name, Lord Jesus, I beg you to send the Father’s blessing and the Spirit’s grace into their hearts…”
