Daily Prayer for the Synod

Written on: September 28, 2023

The 2023 Synod on Synodality assembly at the Vatican will be opening on October 4. We encourage you to join us in this daily prayer, asking that the Spirit guide all participants in their deliberations and decisions toward unity and hope.

As Pope Francis has said, “Everyone has a part to play; no one is a mere extra … The Synod is for everyone, and it is meant to include everyone … Let everyone come in … the Holy Spirit needs us. Listen to him by listening to each other. Leave no one behind or excluded.”


We stand before You, Holy Spirit, as we gather together in Your name.

With You alone to guide us, make Yourself at home in our hearts;

Teach us the way we must go and how we are to pursue it.

Do not let us promote disorder.

Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path

nor partiality influence our actions.

Let us find in You our unity so that we may journey together to eternal life

and not stray from the way of truth and what is right.

All this we ask of You, who are at work in every place and time,

in the communion of the Father and the Son,

forever and ever.
