AN ALTAR SERVER'S PRAYER
Loving Father, creator of the universe,
You call Your people to worship,
to be with You and one another at Mass.
I thank You for having called me
to assist others in their prayer to You.
May I be worthy of the trust placed in me
and through my example and service
bring others closer to You.
I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ,
Who is Lord forever and ever. Amen.
