PRAYER FOR YEAR OF MERCY
Slow to anger, abounding in mercy.
You see us and run to us
when we are far way from you,
You find your way to us
when we cannot find out way to you,
You are always faithful when we are unfaithful.
You entered the house of sinners,
You sat at the table of the poor,
You mounted the Cross, your throne of mercy.
You pour your healing gifts over our wounds,
You annoint us to bring good news to the poor,
You send us out as missionaries of mercy.
GOD OF MERCIES,
Have mercy on us,
so that where sin abounds
your grace may abound all the more,
and we shall become like you, Merciful.
