Dear Heavenly Father, we pray for our Bishop, Joseph Strickland. May he always know the guidance of Your great love through the power of Your Most Holy Spirit.
Fill him with the Spirit of Courage to follow Christ and proclaim His truth as found in Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
Fill him with the Spirit of Wisdom, that he may in confidence lead his flock through times of confusion, doubt, deception and fear.
Father, bless his apostolic ministry in Your Church. Protect and defend him as he stands in the person of Jesus Christ, offering his life for the sake of Your Holy Church.
We offer our prayer to You Father, and invoke our Blessed Mother’s intercession to Your Beloved Son on behalf of Bishop Joseph Strickland. Amen
