April 18 – Noon


But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’”

(Luke 15:32)


Dear God,

You are our loving and merciful Father, and we are grateful for the abundant grace and love that You pour out on us each day. We thank You for always welcoming us back into Your arms, just as the father in this verse welcomed his wayward son with open arms. We ask for Your forgiveness for the times when we have strayed from Your path and turned away from Your love. Help us to always remember Your unwavering love and to turn to You when we are in need.

We pray for the strength and courage to live our lives in a way that is pleasing to You, and to always seek Your guidance in all that we do. May we always remember that we are Your beloved children, and that You are always there to welcome us back with love and forgiveness. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
