May God breathe his life into the Church; breathe holiness and deepening faith, breathe energy, inspired teaching and fervent praise; may he unblock the channels and make us more receptive to his gentleness and his power.
May God breathe his life into the universe; breathe caring, honesty and compassion, breathe right values and good stewardship, peace and reconciliation, vision and hope.
May God breathe his life into our homes and places of work; breathe increased patience and understanding, and the courage to live the Christian life, when to do so brings ridicule or demands sacrifice.
May God breathe his life into those who suffer; breathe comfort and wholeness, forgiveness and new confidence, breathe peace of mind and the knowledge of his love.
May God breathe his life into the dead and dying; breathe courage for the journey and the realisation that he can be trusted. May he breathe life that lasts for ever.
