Blessing for Global Celebration of Young People

Good and gracious God,

we ask your blessing upon the young people of the world

and for all youth and young adults everywhere.

Bless and keep them,

so that they may be reassured that they are infinitely loved.

Give them newfound hope,

so that they may know your presence at every moment.

Strengthen them for their journeys.

May they grow in wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.

Bless their endeavors and actions,

that they may be a blessing to their peers, community, and Church.

Accompany us, Lord, young and old,

as we accompany one another on this journey together.

Help all of us, also, to accompany these young men and women,

through the joys, struggles, and experiences of their everyday lives,

and grant us the humility to learn from and be inspired by the young.

We ask this blessing through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

God, for ever and ever.

Amen
