Junior Auxiliary of Abbeville, Louisiana
All of our monthly Junior Auxiliary chapter meetings and social functions begin with the unison recital of our prayer. This is not just a ceremonial gesture on our part, it is something that we take to heart as we sincerely ask for blessings to guide us in our endeavors.
"Send us, O’ God, as Thy messengers to the hearts without a home, to lives
without love, to the crowds without a guide. Send us to the children whom none
have blessed, to the famished whom none have visited, to the fallen whom none
have lifted; to the bereaved whom none have comforted.
Kindle Thy flame on the altars of our hearts, that others may be warmed
thereby; cause Thy light to shine in our souls, that others may see the way;
keep our sympathies and insight ready, our wills keen, our hands quick to help
others in their need.
Grant us clear vision, true judgment, with great daring as we seek to right
the wrong; and so endow us with cheerful love that we may minister to the
suffering and forlorn even as Thou wouldst. May the blessings of God, Almighty,
the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, rest upon us and upon all our work. May
he give us light to guide us, courage to support us and love to unite us, now
and forever more.
