PRAYER of the DAY - APBA p484

Remember, O Lord,

what you have wrought in us

and not what we deserve,

and, as you have called us to your service,

make us worthy of our calling;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.


GOSPEL for the Day: Luke 6: 36-38

36Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

37 ‘Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven; 38give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.’


Merciful is a favourite word Pope Francis uses to describe God. But does it describe us?

Can I remember when I was aware of people gossiping about me, with limited understanding of why I behaved as I did.

A Sioux prayer says: ‘May I never judge another until I have walked in his moccasins’.

Jesus asked us to show openness and abundance in the way we are merciful and forgive others. In doing so are we imitating in a small way the forgiving love he has lavished on us.

Jesus stressed the importance of good relationships with our fellow man. Our world would be a different place if we were merciful and non-condemning.


A prayer for the year of Ecumenism, Inter-religious Dialogue and Indigenous Peoples.

Almighty ,Ever-Living ,Merciful God, we thank you for the life you have given us.

Together we people of diverse religions , spiritual expressions and indigenous traditions who speak to you by different names pray that you give us the chance to encounter each other through dialogue, to feel mutual respect and acceptance of each other.

And to break down the walls of division that stand at the centre of most misunderstandings and conflict.

Make us instruments of your Light , Love and Peace.

Guide us to walk in your path and be a source of hope to everyone.

Give us the wisdom to discern the truth and to choose what is right and just and to make the world a better place to live in.
