Prayer for the Year of Youth

Almighty and merciful Father, bless our young people, so that they may grow in your love, be able to distinguish between good and evil, hold fast to the truth, and have the courage to take responsibility and the readiness to share. Sustain them in their difficulties, and in their doubts and uncertainties, accompany them and bring them your comfort.
Lord, we ask you to help young people to respond to the particular calling that you have for each one of them. May they shine forth in the world as Christians and achieve a life which is fulfilling. We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
