PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE  
 SILENT PRAYER & REFLECTION
 PRAYER OF THE COMMUNITY  
 God, you know us better than we know ourselves. You  
 know our thoughts, our weaknesses, our motivations, our
 sins. And you love us still. Forgive us when we don’t believe
 such love is true or possible; when we wonder how you
 could love us just as we are; when we forget we are
 intricately and wonderfully made in your image. Remove
 from our minds every thought which keeps us from loving
 you and others. Break down the walls, push aside the pride,
 and help us to trust anew. Yes, you know us and you love us
 still. Help the words we pray become our ways of living,
 Our Father…
