Merciful Father, let our hearts grow in a filial spirit so that we may be able to enter the inheritance which is promised to us.As International Young Christian Students (IYCS), enable us to reject all that is unworthy of Jesus Christ and seek what gives Him honor.

God who loves innocence, direct towards you the heart of your Young Christian Students children from Africa and around the world, that they may never abandon the light of your truth and give us the grace to adopt the behavior of a new person, make us young people who are available to your calling and quick to fulfill the will of love you have manifested through Jesus Christ.

As on the Day of Pentecost, Jesus Christ, Light of lights, send the Holy Spirit upon us to guide preparations and proceedings of the 10th IYCS Pan African Council and accompany us so that this Council finds its roots in you and that it may be achieved for your glory.

Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Word, we come before you, intercede for us so as to witness to the gospel of your Son who reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit , now and forever. Amen.
