Lord in your Mercy

Hear our Prayer 

 

Lord Jesus at the Cross you created a new community,

Fill our families with care and love.

Lord Jesus at the Cross you opened the eyes of many to who you were,

Open our eyes to see you as you are.

Lord Jesus at the Cross you united enemies,

Help us to love those we find it hard to agree with.

Lord Jesus at the Cross you spoke words of peace and reconciliation,

Help us to bring peace into difficult situations.

Lord Jesus at the Cross you offered signs of hope,

May we bring hope where there is despair.

Lord Jesus at the Cross you gave up your life,

Help us to be generous with what we have.

Lord Jesus at the Cross you cried ‘it is finished’,

We thank you that Jesus achieved all he came to do.

 

Lord in your Mercy

Hear our Prayer
