Scripture: John 9:1-41
Gracious and merciful God,
We come before you with grateful hearts on this fourth Sunday in Lent, knowing you are the source of all light and truth.
We ask that you open our eyes, just as you did for the blind man. Please help us to see the world and ourselves as you see them and to recognize how we are blind to our shortcomings.
We pray for the courage to face the challenges of seeing the truth and the strength to follow the path you have set for us.
May we also have the compassion to see others with love and understanding, even when we disagree or do not understand their perspective.
We ask for your grace and guidance as we continue our Lenten journey, seeking to grow closer to you and live out your love in the world.
In Jesus’ name, we pray,
