The National Day of Prayer
Today Loyola Retreat House joins Christians across the country in prayer.
If you are ever looking for a quiet place to pray, come visit us! We have prayer paths, outdoor Stations of the Cross, and an Our Lady of Fatima Shrine. Or you can just enjoy the beauty of nature as you “Come Away to the Quiet!” With the flowers all in bloom, this time of year is especially breathtaking.
In the spirit of the National Day of Prayer and in thanksgiving for the natural beauty all around us, we wanted to share this prayer with you:
Prayer for the Care of the Earth
God our Father and Creator, we give you thanks
for the wonder of creation, which inspires us,
the fruit of the Earth, which feeds us,
and the joy of life, which give us hope.
Heal the places where your creation has been marred,
and restore all creatures to the splendor of your glory,
that all may delight once again in your goodness.
