Your name forever, O God, is that of love. Even when we masquerade it or perverse it you remain faithfully I AM WHO I AM you who are love and mercy in abundance from one generation to the next.
You call us to bear fruit, for we are planted in you. When we fail to do so, you tend to the plant of our life and once again give us the chance to bear fruit in love for eternally you are I AM.
God, the great I AM,
you know us each by name and love us beyond our knowing.
In these Lenten days and challenging times
guide us in your ways of love and mercy
so, we may bear fruit of love and mercy in this hurting world,
trusting that you are with us now and in generations to come.
