Action Prayer 25 February 2024 by Judy Masters

The emphasis in our readings this weekend is how God loves us so much that he gave his beloved son to us.

Sacrifices. What does that mean in today's world? We are familiar with sacrifices for our children, family and friends--being inconvenienced, giving time, energy and money out of love. Or denying self for a goal, like work or career. But how do we sacrifice for God? How do we acknowledge God's sacrifice for us? Last week our Action Prayer involved making a Lenten Plan. This week as we do our plan, let's examine our actions, in meditation/contemplation, on what it means to sacrifice in reference to God. Is it more than giving or denying? Is it something deeper, more encompassing, more profound? Is it simple? Challenging? Sacrifice.

Jonathan Roumie from The Chosen prays the Our Father in Aramaic - the language Jesus spoke:

Hear the Our Father and Hail Mary in over 20 languages:

O Prince of Peace,

Once more we hear the guns of war,
Once more we see the faces
Of frightened children.
We pray for the people of Ukraine,
That they may be granted peace;
We pray for the people of Russia,
That they may demand peace;
We pray for our country,
That we may be a positive part
Of peace making in this world.
O Prince of Peace,
Lead us from this dark time
To a deeper understanding
Of the global human family,
So all may break bread together
In the secure embrace of peace.
