Prayer for Discernment in Use of Technology
You have given us the skills and ability to create technology. We have used it often to
spread the Good News of salvation and God’s plan for those who believe. Please help us
continue to evangelize in this way, using the gifts you have given us for good, not for evil.
Some have fallen prey to the temptations that are available on technology and have
squandered the precious gift of time on mindless entertainment and valueless escapism.
We can easily become slaves to technology, forgetting the incredible gift of being present to
you and to one another.
Through technology, we have an easily accessible way to communicate with one another.
Let us continue to witness, not only with our words, but the work we do in your name. May
we always embrace our responsibility in this life - to serve you and those we come into
contact with each day - as we seek a balance in our use of technology.
May we use technology and our time wisely as a means to communicate your message of
love to the world. Amen.
