Prayer Resources

Mercy Partners Formation develops an annual Prayer Resource for use with ministry leaders, directors and staff in meetings and gatherings. Prayer is an important part of any meeting for focus, to reinforce Catholic identity and to call God’s blessing on the proceedings. Prayer time is also formative as it allows those present to examine aspects of life, faith and experience. Mercy Partners prayer resources have been popular with ministries across Australia because they provide a set of prayers (10 copies of each individual prayer) packaged ready for use in meetings. The prayers allow the focus on a particular theme or aspect of Gospel life, such as Laudato Si, Catholic Social Teaching and the Parables, enabling prayer to be both spiritually enriching and a catalyst for learning.
