Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned.
(Ps. 51)


God of gentleness and compassion,
there are so many times that we have failed to remain on good and solid ground in following you.
Between our families, friends and co-workers,
there are many distractions that lead us down the wrong path.
Be merciful to us during these moments and help us to recognize your willingness to forgive us.
Amen.

My God of justice, you answer my cry; you come to my help when I am in trouble. Take pity on me, Lord, and hear my prayer. (Ps. 4)

Lord Jesus, we reflect on how we can improve our relationship with you,
with members of our families, friends and co-workers,
yet there are times that we stray from your words and rather take the easier way out.
Help us to look beyond the harm and pain of others and reach out to them in love, even when we find it difficult to be present to them.
Amen.

To the upright I will show the saving power of God.
(Ps. 50)


Lord Jesus, we are asked to do alms and offer sacrifices as we reflect on the events in our own lives.
There are times when we want so much to do what is right yet we do not succeed.
Help us to remember that you are with us no matter how often we fail to follow your words.
Amen.

Lord, you are truly the Savior of the world;
give me living water, that I may never thirst again.
(Jn. 4)


God of all compassion, you call us to the well of the living water.
You tell us that anyone who drinks from this well will never thirst again.
We pray, this day, for the grace to recognize you when we are at the well and have the courage to drink from the life giving waters.
Amen.

As your name, so also your praise reaches to the ends of the earth;
your right hand is filled with justice.

We seek you with all our hearts and treasure your promises in our lives.

Save me, O God, by your power, and grant me justice!
God, hear my prayer; listen to my plea.
(Ps. 53)


Lord, we know that you are near to the broken hearted.
You are the source of life and we are aware that you know our weaknesses,
our every thoughts even before we share them.
Please hear our intentions this day, for we are in need of your loving kindness
and of your forgiving presence in our lives.
Amen.
