Prayer of the Day
O Lord God, your mercy delights us, and the world longs for your
loving care. Hear the cries of everyone in need, and turn our hearts to
love our neighbors with the love of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and
Sunday Scripture Readings:
God of justice, your word is light
and truth. Let your face shine on us to restore us, that we may walk in
your way, seeking justice and doing good. Amen.
Evening PrayerDivine Judge, you framed the earth with
love and mercy and declared it good; yet we, desiring to justify
ourselves, judge others harshly, without knowledge or understanding. Keep
us faithful in prayer that we may be filled with the knowledge of your
will, and not ignore or pass by another's need, but plumb the depths of
love in showing mercy. Amen.
