Our prayers for this day, the Twenty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time
Lord, we will always try to remember to wash our hands… Really, it is the simple stuff that help us to observe Your commandments most carefully. We aspire to truly be a wise and intelligent people. If we walk blamelessly, living in the presence of the Lord, we will do justice.
We seek to honor You, Lord with our lips and aim to be doers of the word and not hearers only. Give us strength to slanders not with our tongues or take up a reproach against our neighbors. We are just a bunch of messy handed people.
Humbly, we seek to welcome and nurture the Word that has been planted within us. <image source>
