A Prayer for the Fifth Sunday of Lent

Posted by RENEW on Apr 7, 2019 7:00:59 AM

My Lord and my God,
you who are slow to anger and
abounding in kindness and compassion,
pour forth your mercy upon me.
Help me to drop the stones of
self-righteous judgment,
and the stones of retribution.
Let me always look with compassion and empathy
on the actions of others.
May I always leave judgment to you.
May I learn to choose forgiveness and love.
Thank you for quietly inviting me
to drop the stones I cling to.
Give me the grace to be held in your abundant love
so I may unclench my fists and be free.
