Absolve, pardon, and remit, O God, all of our transgressions, committed willingly and those unwillingly, known and unknown, the hidden and manifest. Forgive us, Lord, for the sake of your holy name.
Master, Lord, God Almighty! Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We thank you for every situation, condition, and moment. You have sheltered and helped us; you have guarded us and accepted us as your own.
Guide us to do those things that are pleasing and dear to you, that through us, unworthy though we are, your all-holy name may be glorified, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one Godhead and one Kingdom.
Just as you were with your disciples, O Savior, and gave them peace, graciously be with us also: grant us your peace; save us, and deliver our souls.
We entreat you, Lord, give us grace and strength to sing your praises with understanding, and to pray to you unceasingly, working out our salvation in fear and trembling with the help of your Christ.
By definition, a priest is one who makes a sacrificial offering to God on behalf of the people. Jesus is our Great High-priest who makes the offering of his very self for the life and for the salvation of the world. Here’s Part 1 of a study of Jesus’ Great High-priestly Prayer in John 17.
For your mercy’s sake, Lord my God, tell me what you are to me. So speak that I may hear, O Lord; my heart is listening; open it that it may hear you, and say to my soul: I am your salvation.
O Holy Spirit, Powerful Consoler! You love the humble and resist the proud. Come to me, O glory of the living and hope of the dying. Lead me by your grace that I may always be well-pleasing to you.
Teach us your justice, O God; teach us your commandments and your statutes. Dispel all darkness from our hearts, and graciously let the sun of righteousness shine upon us.
O Lord, listen to our supplications with mercy and answer them with compassion. In your good pleasure, O God accept, our adoration and prayer and be gracious to us.
