My Dearest God,

  I -- Michele Glance Rooney -- pray for Emily to have an ever-increasing hunger for more of You. May Emily long for Your presence -- desiring to spend time with You in prayer, praise and worship. Give Emily a desire for the truth of Your Word and a love for Your laws and Your ways. Teach Emily to live by faith and be led by the Holy Spirit, having an availability to do what You tell her to do.
  May Emily be so aware of the fullness of Your Holy Spirit in her that when she is depleted in any way she will immediately run to You to be renewed and refreshed.
  May a tremendous reverence and deep love for You and Your ways color everything Emily does and every choice she makes.
  I pray that Emily will be reliable, dependable, reasonable, compassionate, sensitive, loving and giving to others. I pray that Emily will have a teachable and submissive spirit that says "yes" to the things of God. Strengthen Emily to stand strong in her convictions.
  I pray that Emily will always desire to be an active member of a Catholic Christian Church that is alive to the truth of the Gospel message and the power of Holy Spirit led worship, prayer and teaching. As Emily learns to read Your Word, write Your law in her mind and on her heart so that she always walks with a confident assurance of the righteousness of Your commands. As Emily learns to pray, may she also learn to listen for Your voice. I pray that Emily's relationship with You will always be strong. May there always be a Holy Spirit fire in Emily's heart and an unwavering desire for the things of God.

"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled." (Matthew 5:6)
