Fourth Sunday in Lent

“Be our vision, O God. Enable us to see things as you see them; to discern in the ebb and flow of life the providence that knows our every need before we ask; to look upon both neighbors and enemies with compassion; to recognize in the beggar, the stranger, the hungry, and the homeless the face of the child of God; to look in the mirror and see a much-loved disciple called by Christ to an abundant life. Healing God, anoint our eyes with your salve, that we may see better than ever before and follow your way with anticipation and joy. In your name we pray, Amen.”
