Lord, Giver of Life, give us the strength to persevere and the joy of participating in Your miraculous work. You have the words of eternal life. Write those words on our hearts. Transform us into righteous people. Make our mouth into a fountain of life. In this world there are traps everywhere, lying lips, toxic pleasures – everything that leads on the road of death. Protect us from those false gods and from those false solutions. Satisfy us with Yourself and fill us with overflowing life, that we may attract our neighbours to the True Life. Amen.
Living God, Your Word is the truth. We are conscious of the falsehood of human beings. All have gone astray from your straight path. By means of lies, the poor are oppressed. Because of our shame, we hide ourselves by means of lies. It is a nauseating cycle. Lord, forgive us our deviation from the truth. Transform us by your Word so that we may also speak the truth and that by the truth peace would reign and that the oppressed would be delivered. All for your glory. Amen.
