Prayer: On the Beatitudes

Posted by RENEW on Feb 18, 2019 6:00:51 AM

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness
for they will be satisfied.
Generous God, bless those who are zealous
in their quest for justice and keep them
on a path that is always directed toward you.
Fill them and us with a desire to
see your “little ones” cared for
and treated with dignity and respect.
 
Blessed are the merciful
for they will be shown mercy.
Merciful God, bless those
who recognize your steadfast love
in all aspects of their lives and
who extend themselves to others
in gentle acts of mercy and compassion.
Bring them and us comfort
when we feel most desperate and alone.
 
Blessed are the clean of heart
for they will see God.
All-powerful God, bless those
who are fervent in their faith.
Reveal yourself to them and to us
through every aspect of our lives.
 
We offer these prayers with confidence
through the Holy Spirit and
in the name of our Lord, Jesus.
Amen.
