Sermon Illustrations on Mercy

Almighty and Everlasting God, whom the heaven of heavens cannot contain, much less the temples which our hands have built, but who are ever near to those who are humble and contrite; grant to us your Holy Spirit, we ask you, to us who have gathered; that cleansed and illumined by your grace, we may worthily show forth your praise, meekly learn your word, render due thanks for your mercies, and obtain a gracious answer to our prayers; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Ever loving and eternal God, source of the light that never sets and of the love that never fails. Life of our life, Father of our spirits; draw near to us, and by the remembrance of your ancient mercies, and by the ministry of the Church, teach us and lead us nearer to you; by all our fears, by all our joys and sorrows, by life and death itself, teach us, and lead us nearer to you.. Amen.
