God of life
you continue to call your pilgrim people
to share more deeply in your intimate love.
As we prepare for World Youth Day in Rio
pour out your Spirit upon young Australians
that we may be the very sign and promise
of your presence in the world.
Inflame us to know you more deeply
and serve you more truly
as we respond to your call to be your disciples
and share that call to make disciples of all nations.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
