Saint Lawrence of Brindisi,
We seek your prayer and intercession to use our gifts and talents to their fullest ability. Just as you became known for service to the poor and needy, diplomat, scholar and preacher, so too, for us, ask Jesus to help us use our gifts. Pray we may be mindful of the poor. Ask for grace so we may share the gospel. Help us to grow deeper in love with Jesus. In all things, help us to do the will of Christ which you so faithfully did in your life. We pray through Christ our Lord.
