4th SUNDAY IN LENT March 26-27, 2022

Merciful God, help us to bring to You our judgment and lack
of mercy. As we come to Your altar instill in us the humility
and mercy shown by the father to his prodigal son.

Loving God, as we conclude Women’s History Month, we
pray for the many women who serve your Church around the
world. May their service be recognized and elevated within
the hierarchy of the Church.

Loving God, as we celebrate Sister Thea Bowman on the date
of her death, March 30, we pray that her legacy inspires us to
share the message of Your unconditional love and break the
chains of oppression in our community.

Merciful God, we pray for peace, in our city and around the
world, especially in Ukraine. Inspire our leaders to continue
the fight against the hatred that continues the violence
against humanity.

Merciful God, we pray for the infirmed, that they find relief.
We pray for those who have died, especially Rita McFadden
and Thomas Walker, that they find everlasting comfort and
peace in You.
