3rd Sunday of Easter

Glory
God of our fathers,
by raising Jesus from the dead,
you have glorified your Son and author
of life.
We offer you thanks and praise
for your countenance shining upon us
with this great gift of love.
Like the Apostles in the Upper Room,
give us your peace as we stand in
amazement of your glory.
With hearts transformed,
urge us to go forth preaching Jesus’
Holy Name
and bear witness to his healing love
and peace.
Bind up our wounds
so that, bearing the marks of the cross,
we may be found strong in faith,
persevering in hope, and filled with the
fire of your love.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Fifth Week of Lent

Pure Hearts
Good and loving God,
you have written your law within
our hearts.
In these final Lenten days,
examine our hearts and purge them of
all that keeps us from you.
Grant us, who were baptized into
Christ Jesus,
the strength of the Holy Spirit to release
our selfish desires
and through this dying to self, rise to
new life.
Grow within our hearts a deep desire to
live in union with you
and aid our journey as we follow
your will.
Give us pure hearts that remain
obedient to your promises
so that, filled with the grace of
your covenant,
we may imitate your Son
and proclaim your goodness throughout
the earth.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Fourth Week of Lent

Raise Us Up
O God,
you are rich in mercy and full
of compassion.
From generation to generation,
you poured forth your abundant love upon
your people.
Liberate us from the darkness of sin
and raise us up with Christ,
so that, renewed by the Cross,
we may be strengthened for ministry.
Watch over us when we go astray
and keep us close to the heart of
your Son.
Give us prophetic voices
that joyfully announce your mercy
and love
to all those who are exiled by sin
so that all may find a place at the
heavenly banquet.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Third Week of Lent

Law of Love

Holy God,

you established a covenant with your

people Israel

and gave them the law to direct

their hearts.

Keep us ever mindful of the law of love

revealed in your Son, Jesus,

who liberates us from sin and directs

our hearts.

Give us strength to follow Christ

and wisdom to discern his presence.

Have mercy on us, O Lord,

and banish from us all that keeps us

from you.

Grant us ears to hear your

life-giving words,

which are like honey from the comb,

so that, as temples of their Holy Spirit,

we may proclaim your majesty

to all nations.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
