Let us Pray to the Lord. Lord have Mercy.

He called You a man of authority and so You are for You have authority over life and death.

We pray in the name of the Father Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

O Lord You call us blessed who have not seen and yet believe. We pray that we may see with our spiritual eyes as Apostle Thomas saw with his physical eyes.

Let us Pray to the Lord. Lord have Mercy.

O Lord You wept over Jerusalem because the people rejected You. We pray that we will not be like them.

We pray in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen
