FIRST MONDAY IN LENT



Lord,

Your forgiveness is total,

no notebook,

video recorder,

or post-it note

to remind you of that moment

when.……..

You take our confession,

offered with hands outstretched,

and gently,

like the loving

heavenly Father that you are,

put it to one side

to be forgotten.

No grudges, no itching for judgement,

no resentment or ill-will.

Not like us

who find it easy to say sorry,

but so hard to forgive

absolutely.

Forgive us, Father,

that we are often more willing

to accept forgiveness,

than to forgive,

more willing to accept your love,

than to share it with those

who have hurt us.

Teach us to forgive,

as you forgive.



UKRAINE AND RUSSIA


God of peace, we feel overcome by anxiety

in things over which we have no control.

Help us to lean on You.

Quieten the storms that rage around us.

Give us peace in the present chaos,

You who stilled the storm

and becalmed uncontrollable forces.
