We give glory to you our Lord and allow us to utter your divine healing word, “Ephphatha!” as we look up to you our Father in Heaven.
Bless my heart with all its affections. Bless my thoughts, my body and all its actions. Bless my loved ones. Accept my offerings and labor for the day.
Implant in our hearts and minds your sense of fairness, equity and justice. Teach us that mercy humbles justice and your love covers all, including our limitations, weaknesses, and sins.
Sanctify our noble intention to learn from each other in order that we can perform our duties as law abiding citizens .
Bless our leaders in order that the taxes that were paid and yet to be paid and the natural richness of Your Creations will be used in accordance with your Divine Will.
Protect us from disasters and calamities. Do not bring us to the test and deliver us from evil. Amen.
