Prayer for the Year of Mercy
you reveal your love for us
in your Son, Jesus Christ,
who is the face of your mercy.
Pour out your mercy upon us
that we may bring to every person
your goodness and tenderness —
signs of your Kingdom,
present among us.
May we become merciful
like you, Father, are merciful.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Father of all Mercy
As I come before you in prayer
I carry in my heart this day
Who is in need of your Mercy.
Great has been your love for me
Rescuing me out of the
Clutches of evil
And restoring me
To my place in your presence
Now open the doors of Mercy
To my brother/sister
Who I now carry home to you
Our Father of Mercy.

And I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one, as we are one.” Jo. 17:
