As children of God, we turn to our loving Father for mercy and forgiveness.
We call on God for strength to live in the Spirit.
In prayer we ask for the grace to obey God’s command to love, and for mercy when we do not.
As we continue on our Easter journey, we ask for new life in God.
Only God can lead us to salvation, and in prayer we express our dependence on God and God’s mercy.
We turn to God to ask for the forgiveness God has promised us.
Let us pray for the love in which we follow and obey our God.
We call on the name of our risen Lord, who forgives our sins.
