From that time on, Jesus began to preach and say,
“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
Mt 4


Lord, your message was focused on the Kingdom of God.
You call us to change our hearts so that they reflect the kingdom values of peace, love, and justice.
We listen to the scriptures to hear your teaching and your actions with those values.
We gather around your table to renew the eternal covenant.
Then we are sent into the world to proclaim and build up that kingdom.
Give me the wisdom to recognize how I can make the world around me a bit more like your kingdom.
Amen.

O God, give your judgment to the king; your justice to the king’s son;
that he may govern your people with justice, your oppressed with right judgment.
Ps 72


Lord, you expect governance to be with justice.
You want all people to be in right relationship with one another,
to help one another so that all people may participate fully in our communities.
You expect that we will reach out to the poor and the oppressed,
the migrant and the refugee so that they will be able to live with the dignity of your children.
All lives matter, and without your justice there can be no peace.
Help us to build your kingdom.
Amen.

It is your face, O Lord, that I seek.
Ps 27


Eternal Father, through your divine son, you bring us to know of your infinite patience with us,
that you are near to us and that your tenderness melts even the coldest heart.
Help us to be patient, to remain faithful and to deliver your tender love to all we meet this day.
We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

I am like a growing olive tree in the house of God.
Ps 52


Father, you sent Jesus to win all hearts to serve you as loving disciples.
Make us fruitful as we are branches on the one true vine which is Christ the Lord.
May our communion with him lead us to delight in the fullness of life he came to bring us.
We pray through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Son though he was, he learned obedience through what he suffered.
Heb 5


Lord, you sent your son to save us by obeying your will, even to death.
Help me to know, desire and embrace your will.
May I follow your son faithfully even if it costs me much.
To follow Christ is to discover the blessed freedom to be your good servant.
I make this prayer through the same Christ our Lord.
Amen.

My God is my rock, where I take refuge; my shield, my mighty help, my stronghold.
Ps 18


God of glory, you are our shelter against the burning heat of noonday.
You are our sure balance midst the storms of life.
Help us when we stumble and catch us when we fall.
May your spirit guide us without fail toward the promise of eternal life.
Amen.

I call you my friends, says the Lord,
for I have made known to you all that the Father has told me.
(Jn 15)


Lord Jesus, it is so good to hear that you call us friends. We desire so much to be your friend.
You have made known to us all that the Father has told you and we want to hear more.
In this wanting, we desire to believe more deeply in your words and in your life.
As we journey with our friends and family, guide us to hear your words over and over again,
so that we may develop a natural response to hear your words and to do the will of the One who sent you.
Amen.

The daybreak from on high will visit us.

Touch all our relationships with the warmth of your love.
In all our decisions, shine the light of your divine guidance upon our path.
We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

The Word of God became flesh and dwelt among us.
To those who accepted Him, He gave power to become children of God.
Jn 1


Almighty and ever-present Father, hear our prayers as we call out to you.
Help us to be bearers of peace in our world.
To those who are troubled may we bring them peace,
may our lives be a source of comfort to those who are in pain.
By these actions, may they know of your presence in our world and in their lives.
Amen.

Teach me your ways, O Lord.
Ps 25


Almighty and ever-living God, today we come to you in prayer to ask for your guidance.
We take a moment to present our needs,
to ask that you guide us and to reveal our desire to follow you each and every day.
By your generous gift of your grace,
may we grow in our knowledge of you and deepen our love for you.
Amen.
