U Genade en Barmhartigheid


Merciful God, heal our community, even though we have sinned against You and according to your great compassion blot out our transgressions in this community. (Psalm 41:4; 51:1) When we conceal our sins, we will not prosper, therefore we confess and renounce them so that we may find mercy with You. (Proverbs 28:13) Do not hold against us the sins of our fathers; may Your mercy come quickly to meet us, for we are in desperate need. (Psalm 79:8.)

Who is a God like You, who pardons sin and forgives transgressions and does not stay angry forever but delights to show mercy? (Micah 7:18.) Have mercy on the people in our community as You had mercy on Israel. Do not put an end to us or abandon us, for You are a gracious and merciful God. Let those that had not received mercy, receive Your mercy now, so that they will glorify You. (Nehemiah 9:31; 1 Pet.2:10; Romans 15:9)

You showed us what is good for us and what You require from us: To act justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with our God. (Micah 6:8.) Strengthen us to do your will; help us to follow Your example to administer true justice and to show mercy and compassion to one another. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. (Zechariah 7:9; Matthew 5:7; Romans.12:18.) Let us not neglect justice, mercy and faithfulness. (Matthew 23:23) With the Church through the ages we cry: Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, have mercy on us. (Matthew 9:27; Luke 18:38; Matthew 15:22) Multiply Your mercy, peace, and love unto us. (Jude 2)
