Week of Prayer – Day 3

The Lord is gracious and merciful to all (Psalm 145:8)

  • Psalm 145:8-13
  • Matthew 1:1-17


God of all humanity your Son was born into a line of men and women, ordinary and extraordinary. Some of them were remembered for their great deeds, others more for their sins. Give us an open heart to share your unbounded love, and to embrace all who experience discrimination. Help us to grow in love beyond prejudice and injustice. Grant us the grace to respect the uniqueness of each person, so that in our diversity we may experience unity. This prayer we make in your holy name. Amen
