Loving Father,
in death, our lives are changed not ended.
Let us remember in word and deed
that you are calling us by name
that our lives on earth
relate to our lives in heaven.
We make our prayer
through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Lord Jesus,
you called Zacchaeus by his name
and you helped him to grow.
Enter our lives in that way today,
calling us by our names,
so that we may grow
and be the persons you call us to be.
Amen.

Dear Jesus,
you are like a mirror
in which we can see ourselves
with our limits and our possibilities.
Teach us to see ourselves
as loved by you completely
just as we are.
Amen.

Almighty God,
I am grateful to you for my existence.
I am sorry for the complaints
you often hear from me.
In fact, “my cup runneth over.”
Help me to live your gift of life
to the fullest
each day of my life.
Amen.

Loving God and Father,
my life and support,
let me grow in faith,
and let me realize that my faith in you
is nothing in comparison
to your faith in me.
I ask this in the name of Jesus, my Brother,
who lives with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
Amen.

Holy triune God, you dwell within each of us.
Help us to know that the light of your Presence
is truly realized in each of us.
Help us to become your light for the world,
and to see beyond the false divisions
that separate us from one another
so that we may truly live as reflections of your love,
as we await the fulfillment of your reign here on earth,
O God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Amen.

Compassionate and merciful God,
you adorn the earth with lush treasures
and clothe it in royal attire.
You provide human beings with every good gift
and you feed us with spiritual food.
Your compassion is endless;
your mercy flows freely like a river.
Gift us, your faithful servants,
with your wisdom and creativity,
so we may be good stewards
of the wealth you have entrusted to our care.
Strengthen us as we go forth
to share your truth with the rest of the world.
Grant this through your Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.

Amen.

God of the lost,
through the incarnation of your Son,
you free human beings from the ravages of sin,
and you pour out your abundant mercy
on the lost and the broken.
Sinners find refuge in the shadow of your wings
and you provide your people with an abundant harvest.
Send workers into the world to seek out the lost
and offer life to sinners.
Direct my efforts and purify my heart,
as I go out seeking the lost sheep of this world.
May your Spirit empower me to become
a more effective ambassador
of your compassion.
I ask this in the name of Jesus, the Lord.
Amen.

God of the living,
all the earth bows down before you.
All creation groans in praise of you.
You alone are the Lord of lords.
You alone are the God of all creation.
You invite all human beings
into deep and personal relationship.
You insist that we shall have no other gods before you.
Help me as I seek to place you first in my life.
Send your Spirit to strengthen me
as I strive to embrace the cross,
and fill me with the wisdom I need
to resist the attachments of this world.
Alone I can do nothing;
with God all things are possible.
I ask this prayer through the power of Jesus’ name.
Amen.

Dear God,
I praise and thank you
for Jesus who is your Word, your revelation.
Please help me to open my heart,
my mind, and my life
to your truth and your way.
Help me to accept my own burdens
and to be willing to work
toward easing the burdens of others.
I believe my life will be easy
and my burdens light
if I am joined to your Son
who is gentle and humble of heart.
Thank you for this great Incarnation of your love.
In Jesus’ name I pray.
Amen.

God of mercy, Father of all,
you welcome the downtrodden
and are a voice for the voiceless.
You feed the poor
and offer forgiveness to sinners.
And, above all, you sent your Son
for the salvation of the world.
Reveal to me my unrepentant, stony heart
and replace it
with a heart full of love and compassion.
Place your Spirit within me,
so that I might walk in your footsteps
and speak your word to a waiting world.
Enfold me in your protective arms
and help me grow in the intimacy
you long to share with me.
I ask this through Christ, our Lord.
Amen.

God of radiant light,
you spoke to Moses through the burning bush.
You led the people through the desert
by a pillar of fire.
And you sent the purifying fire of your Spirit
to renew and transform the earth.
Strengthen our families
as we face the seductions of this world.
In these days of fulfillment, purify us
so that when the test comes,
families will stand united in their choice of you.
And in our own baptism by fire,
give us the grace to withstand the trials of our lives,
so that, like gold purified by fire,
we, too, may be fashioned in your brilliant image.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.
Amen.

Compassionate God,
you adorn the earth with beauty,
and gift the world with abundant life.
You created human beings in your image
and you instill in them your mercy and compassion.
Strengthen all your servants to grow more fully in the divinity
you have shared with us,
so that we may offer your divine compassion
to those who are broken
by the losses and disappointments of life.
Instill in us the strength and the wisdom
to be prepared for your coming in our lives.
I ask this through Christ, our Lord
and through your Holy Spirit.
Amen.

Jesus, you showed us
how a community should live.
Loving and caring and helping
one another were the cornerstones.
We need to remember
that we can help to create community.
We can come together
and share with one another,
support one another, and love one another.
It may seem difficult in these times,
but your example shows us the way.
Guide us, dear Jesus,
for we need your help.
We ask this in your name.
Amen.
