Prayer, day 2161
Spirit of God, come upon us: Let us stand in your sanctuary and praise Your infinite mercy.
Again and again we have drawn back rather than opening our hearts to our brothers and sisters: forgive us, Lord.
Again and again we have failed to trust in Your promises: forgive us, Lord.
May we be continually converted to a new life in Christ, and welcome him into our hearts. May we be generous in love to those we meet, and sow peace and justice with each step. Mindful of our manifold faults, may we forgive those who have injured us either willfully or accidentally.
We ask that You look with favor upon those who weep or suffer, who mourn or worry, or who seek your guidance.
