Senate Prayer Offered for April 25, 2022

Creator God, we ask You to accompany us this day as we strive to make the best possible decisions for the good of Your people:

Be with us:

In our times of physical need and spiritual trial—when we are tempted to fear and doubt;

In our quest for a more just order—when we are tempted to discouragement.

Be with us:

In our encounters with the poor and needy of our time—when we are tempted to grow weary;

In our debates with persons who disagree with us—when we are tempted to misunderstanding.

Be with us:

In our successes as a governance body—when we may be tempted to self-satisfaction.

Gracious and merciful God, strengthen us on our journey of leadership, that we may witness to the value of humble service for all those who put their trust in our work.

Asdvadz Orhneh. We ask this in Your name.—AMEN.

Senator Portantino, written by Sr. Michelle Gorman, RSM
