Prayer for April 11: Please pray with me. God who teaches, today we remember how you Son went into the Temple one last time to teach. Bless the teachers in our lives. Bless teachers with patience, wisdom, and energy. Help us to be supportive of our teachers as they mold and form our children. Amen.
Prayer for April 10: Please pray with me. God who turns the world right side up, today we remember your Son who went into the Temple and turned the money changers tables over. In doing this, he challenged the status quo of the world, where greed was most important. Turn out greed from our lives Lord. We are but stewards of what we have. You call on us to use what has been given to us to care for others. Give us the courage to recognize that it’s all yours. Amen.
