Elementary:

We open our prayer, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. 

It is easy to love our friends and neighbors.  We joke, laugh and share with our friends. It's fun.

It is also easy to hate those who do mean things to us. 

In Matthew's Gospel, Jesus calls us to love our enemies, to spread goodness rather than evil throughout the world.

 (Matthew 5:43-48).

You have heard that it was said, "You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy."  But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who hurt you, so that you may be children of God who loves us. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you?

The Gospel of the Lord     

Response: [ Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ.]

God even though it is often difficult to forgive, open my heart to forgive those who have been mean to me. 

We ask You to give us the strength to always see good in all people.

Let us pray together by saying together these words of the prophet Micah.

May we act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with our God.

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.​


High School:

We begin our day, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. 

In today's story, Jesus tells us to love others regardless of their actions and words towards us.   We find it easy to love our friends and neighbors.  We joke, laugh and share with our friends. It's fun.

It is also easy to hate those who do mean things to us.  Jesus calls us to love our enemies, to spread goodness rather than evil throughout the world.

Lord, open our hearts and minds as we listen to Your Word.

Today's reading is taken from the Gospel according to Matthew (Matthew 5:43-48).

You have heard that it was said, "You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy."  But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who hurt you, so that you may be children of God who loves us. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you?  You must be perfect, as God is perfect.

The Gospel of the Lord     

Response: [ Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ.]

God of truth, You challenge us to love our enemies.  Even though it is often difficult to forgive, open our heart to forgive those who have been mean to us.  Help us to treat those who are good with goodness and those who are not good with goodness.  Help us to be honest with those who are honest and honest with those who are dishonest.

Jesus, we ask You to give us the strength to always see good in all peoples and in all of Creation.

Let us pray together by saying together these words of the prophet Micah.

May we act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with our God.

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
