God of Love, we pray that during this Lenten season, in Your
covenant of love, we commune to battle the sin of racism.

God of Love, we pray that the Spirit will inspire us to renew
our baptismal promises: renouncing temptation, affirming
our faith in the Trinity, and reminding us of Your covenant
with us.

God of Wisdom, we pray that You instill in all government
leaders the empathy and wisdom to legislate for all, and to
address the inequities that disproportionately affect the poor
and people of color.

God of Wisdom, we ask that you humble us to open our
hearts to Your Word so that we can better serve You.

God of Mercy, we pray for all who suffer illness, that You
bring them comfort, and for their caregivers, that You bring
them strength. We pray for those who have died, that they
find peace in Your loving embrace.
