Thursday February 22nd, 2007 - Prayer of the Week on the beginning of Lent - Matt 6:14 -18
Let us pray to the Lord. Lord have mercy.
O Lord we stand outside of Paradise and weep. Like Adam and Eve we have broken your commandments. We hold in our hearts, animosity, anger and even hatred against members of our family, coworkers, and neighbors. Through lack of forgiveness we are closing the gates for our return. We pray for the ability to forgive those who have wronged us so You will also forgive us. Help us to build treasures in Heaven through prayer, fasting and charity. We pray in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
