A Life of Prayer

Pray and work that God may reign

Throughout your day,
Let the Word of God breathe life into work and rest.
Maintain inner silence in all things
so as to dwell in Christ.
Be filled with the spirit of the beatitudes,
joy, simplicity, mercy.

“My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations” (Mark 11:17; Isaiah 56:7). “A life of prayer is something other than just prayer. Only Christ lived a life of prayer, and only Christ in us can give us the extraordinary grace that is the life of prayer, his presence in us leading us step by step on this way. This life is, in him, nothing less than true harmony with the Father, who is total listening, love and giving. A community of prayer is a place where the glory of God is revealed as life-giving energy, where all the fullness of revelation may be contemplated. A community of prayer is composed of witnesses to the resurrection. Christ has visited them, nourished and forgiven them.”


Mère Geneviève Micheli

Common Prayer


“We are together in the name of the Lord. Invoking the Holy Spirit, we enter into the prayer of praise, of adoration as in taking a breath of love – the true breathing of the cosmos. Our prayer, poor as it is, is a participation in the praise of the communion of saints in heaven and on earth, in the very prayer and intercession of Christ. It is situated at the heart of humanity and of all creation that is waiting impatiently for the revelation of the sons and daughters of God. (Romans 8:19) The communion of saints strengthens us and roots us in solidarity with those who struggle for justice, peace and the integrity of creation. This solidarity engages us in ardent intercession and in offering to the Lord all the sufferings of the world that we carry in our hearts.”

Requests for intercession

The litanies of praise in the morning turn us towards God, the source of all life and all love; in the litanies of intercession in the evening the groaning of creation, the sufferings of the world and of humanity rise up to God.
