From the Back Cover:

A Catechist’s Prayer

Loving God,
creator of all things,
you call us to be in relationship
with you and others.

You are the giver of all I possess,
the source of all my blessings
for which I thank and praise you.
Help me to desire nothing more
than to be filled with your love and grace.

Thank you for calling me to be a catechist,
for the opportunity to share with others
what you have given to me.

May all those with whom
I share the gift of faith
discover how you are present in all things.

May they come to know you,
the one true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

May the grace of the Holy Spirit guide my heart and lips,
so that I may remain constant in loving and praising you.

May I be a witness to the Gospel and a minister of your truth.
May all my words and actions reflect your love.

May all see in me the fruits of your Spirit,
so your glory may be seen in the world.

Amen
