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.

Father, we give you thanks
for loving our world enough to give us your Son.
Through the light of the Spirit, help us to judge clearly
as we seek to make informed and unselfish decisions
for ourselves and for others.
This we ask through Jesus Christ, your Son
Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit.
Amen.

Come Holy Spirit, come!
Open our eyes to those whose minds are locked in fear,
whose hearts still cling to what was.
Direct us to those who need a sign of your love.
Show us how to heal our world, one person at a time.
This we ask through Jesus Christ
who abides with us through you.
Amen.

God of inexhaustible freshness,
we thank you for the glory of these spring days
when all creation celebrates the mystery of resurrection.
Give us a little time to “waste” today
just to praise you with our whole being
and enjoy being part of the glory of spring.
This we ask through Jesus Christ, Your Son,
in whom we live and move and have our being.
Amen.

Loving God
you name us with a voice that speaks to us

God,
You revealed yourself
on a dusty road
in dialogue with your companions.
Help us to see you in the
ordinary events of our lives
in the conversations
the quiet moments
the raucous moments
in those places we would rather
not see you.
Open our eyes to the ways
You constantly seep into our lives.
Amen.

As the spring brings new life in nature,
Easter reminds us
of the new life Jesus has brought for us.

and fill us with what is new and healthy,
positive and life-giving.
We ask this through Christ our Lord,
Amen.

Loving and caring God,
we thank you for Jesus’ love for us that led him to the cross.
Help us to embody his love
in the way we live our lives,
following his path of love, justice, and peace.
Free us from trying to create our own paths,
and help us to proceed on your path,
guided by your light
so that we can experience your joyful peace
even in the midst of the sufferings.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.
