Ordinary Seventh

3_16_jesus_paralytic Our prayer this day, the Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

Lord, we have burdened You with our sins, and wearied You with our crimes. We cry out, “O Lord, have pity on us; we are in need our Your healing, though we have sinned against you." Others have believed in us enough to make way through the chaos and drop us through the roof into where You dwell.

Wipe out our offenses; remember no more the events of the past, consider no longer the things of long ago.  We seek to do something new and we desire Your help.  You can make a way in a meandering desert; You can make rivers within the wasteland.  Forgive us our sins, and command us to  pick up our mats of resting place and be on our way.

We offer You our Yes, our Amen from us. We have never seen anything like the God of all glory. May the Lord keep us and preserve us  Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, from all eternity. Amen. Amen.
