an Awards and Certificate Presentation,
God, our Father, protector of the poor and defender of the widow and orphan, you called your priest, Father Michael J. McGivney, to be an apostle of Christian family life and to lead the young to the generous service of their neighbor. Through the example of his life and virtue may we follow your Son, Jesus Christ, more closely, fulfilling his commandment of charity and building up his Body which is the Church. Let the inspiration of your servant prompt us to greater confidence in your love so that we may continue his work of caring for the needy and the outcast. We humbly ask that you glorify your venerable servant Father Michael J. McGivney on earth according to the design of your holy will. Through his intercession, grant the favor I now present (here make your request). Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Give me the gift of knowledge so that I may know how to orient my life in accordance with the principles of faith.

Give me the gift of strength so that no fear or earthly motivations can take me away from you.
Give me the gift of piety so that I can always serve your majesty with filial love.
Give me the gift of the fear of God so that no fear or earthly motivations can take me away from you.

St. John Paul II remained faithful to his father’s prayer until the last days of his life, praying it each
