Prayer for Evangelization   "O God, who wills that all should be saved and come to the knowledge of truth, pour out your Spirit upon us and grant that we may respond zealously to your urgent call to lead back to the Church those who have strayed.  Prepare their hearts and minds to be receptive to the saving Gospel of your Son.  Send us as workers to gather in your abundant harvest, so that all your people, obedient to the Word and sustained by the power of the Sacraments, may advance in the way of salvation and love.  Through Christ our Lord.  Amen"
