AN ILLINOIS KNIGHT’S 365 PRAYER

My Council is composed of members like me.
I help make it what it is.

It will be a Council dedicated to Faith, Family, and Fraternity,
if I am.
It will stand in solidarity with the Church and the Clergy,
if I do.
Its meetings will be filled,
if I attend and encourage others as well.
It will do great Programming,
if I am involved.
It will make Charitable gifts to many causes,
if I am a generous contributor.

It will bring other Catholic men into the Order,
if I invite them to join.
It will be a Council of Charity and Fraternity, of Unity and Patriotism, if I live those principles.

It will be a Council united through the Eucharist,
if I, who make it what it is, am truly committed to “Faith In Action”.

Therefore, through the intercession of
Blessed Michael J. McGivney
and with the help of Mary, Queen of the Knights,
I shall dedicate myself to the task of being all the things
that I want my Council to be.

AMEN
