My sisters and brothers, we pray to hear God's voice in our lives.
We turn to God who fills our hearts with repentance.
As we begin a new year of Ordinary Time, our scripture readings tell us new beginnings. In a spirit of conversion we ask for God's mercy.
The Magi brought gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Let us bring our prayers like gifts before the newborn king.
Our God is kind and faithful to us. We pray to show faithfulness to God and kindness to our neighbor.
Lord Jesus, you are the light of the world. Help us to walk in your light.
Our God is our help, and we call upon God by name.
The Lord rescues us, gives us rest, and heals us.
