Your grace and mercy


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)
