Thoughts for Thursday, first week of Lent

IMG_1203Let us pray to Christ the Lord, who gave us the new commandment to love one another. R/ Lord may your people grow in love.

In your bounty, Lord, give us the Spirit

who alone can teach us to think and do what is right,

so that we who without you cannot exist,

may live in loving obedience to your will.

(We make our prayer) through our Lord.

Lord,be the beginning and end of all that we do and say.

Prompt our actions with your grace, and complete them with your all-powerful help.

(We make our prayer) through our Lord.
