Lord God,
you are good and
your love surpasses all.
Thank you for your willingness to accept us as we are,
and for surrounding us with your infinite presence.
Help us to be open to your goodness in ourselves and others
so that we may always do what pleases you.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Good and gracious God,
your Son’s teaching on forgiveness
is hard to put into practice.
Yet forgiveness brings us peace and harmony
not only within ourselves
but also with others and with you, our Creator.
Enable us to let go of our painful memories and
to experience the healing power of forgiveness
that you continue to offer us.
May we be more willing to offer forgiveness
so that we will also receive forgiveness.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

God of all peace
you reconciled the world to yourself
in the death and resurrection of your Son.
Help us to be reconcilers in the world:
to bring about forgiveness
to correct the wrongs we see,
to quietly and fairly resolve our differences
and to treat all as the loved individuals that they are.
In your name we pray.
Amen.

Sustainer God,
you are the rock
who gives us solidity and stability
in a shifting and chaotic world.
Help us to be grounded in your infinite love,
a love that finds life
peeking through the cracks of our desolate situations.
May we be witnesses to this life;
a foundation for those who are in need of love and hope.
We ask this in the name of our brother, Jesus,
who taught us to ground ourselves in you.
Amen.

Loving God,
open our mind’s eye
to understand more fully
what having faith in you
leads us to do.
Guide our faltering faith,
and increase our trust
so that, like you,
we may offer to others
the security, love,
and wonder of life in you.
Amen.

Jesus, Lord and Provider,
we have so much to be thankful for,
so much to live on and make us comfortable.
Thank you for calling us to discomfort,
to a more generous giving of
our time, talent, and treasure.
Thank you for leading us to your reign
through the eye of the needle.
Amen.

and the joy of knowing you are near.

For the times we have heard your call
and responded with justice,
for the times we have realized our injustices
and changed our hearts,
For the times people have loved us
even though we were ungrateful and even sinful,
for the times we have been yeast or
good seed for others,
Your kingdom come.
 
God of Love, Lord of Justice,
Spirit of Understanding,
we thank you for the blessing of coming together
to pray and live in your kingdom.
Help us to seek your will and your kingdom forever.
Amen.

Loving Father,
our lives are full of rocky patches and briars.
Many of these obstacles we ourselves create,
for our desires are not rooted in your Word.
Help us renew our love
and understanding of your message.
Spirit of God,
be with us and take away our fears.
Strengthen our resolve to nurture the seed
you have planted within us.
Keep us on the right path
where we can grow and truly be your disciples.
Lord Jesus, open our minds,
our eyes, our ears, and our hearts
to your loving presence in our lives.
Amen.

Dear God, we praise and thank you
for Jesus who is your Word, your revelation.
Please help us to open our hearts,
our minds, and our lives
to your truth and your way.
Help us to accept our own burdens
and to be willing to work toward
easing the burdens of others.
We believe our lives will be easy
and our burdens light
if we are joined to your Son,
who is gentle and humble of heart.
Thank you for this great Incarnation of your love!
In Jesus’ name we pray.
Amen.

We are loved by our God,
yet we often love poorly.
Show us the way, Lord.
 
You have made us your sisters and brothers,
yet we often ignore the crosses
of our sisters and brothers
in God’s human family.
Show us the way, Lord.
 
Although you accept us as we are,
we often do not accept others or ourselves.
Show us the way, Lord.
 
You have showered upon us life’s blessings,
yet we often refuse to help the needy.
Show us the way, Lord.
 
Dear God, give us a new perspective.
Help us look at the world
through the eyes of Jesus the Christ,
and be truly willing to take up
our crosses and follow him.
Amen.

Lord, your love for us is overwhelming.
The very hairs on our head are counted,
yet we ignore the needs of others.
You have guided us toward goodness and life
despite our unfaithfulness.
The power of the world often is the voice
to which we turn.
We are a fearful people, often lacking in faith
and trust in you.
Lord, give us the courage
to speak and act in your name.
You are our loving Father.
We rejoice in your compassionate concern for us.
Help us to show compassion to the people in our world.
With the help of your Holy Spirit,
we will be your witnesses.
We pray in Jesus’ name.
Amen.

Jesus, through the gift of the Eucharist,
you have promised to share with us
your own life in the Father.
This mystery is deep,
help us to understand and believe in you.
We ask this through you, our Bread of Life. Amen.
Amen.
