Verse for the week

The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent and believe in the good news.

Mark 1:15

Prayer this week

Almighty and everlasting God,

you hate nothing that you have made,

and you forgive the sins of all who are penitent:

create and make in us new and contrite hearts, 

that we, worthily lamenting our sins,

and acknowledging our wickedness,

may obtain of you, the God of all mercy,

perfect remission fand forgiveness;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.
