2 Corinthians 7:11-16

Dear Father, who wills the good of all of your children,

Give us great earnestness, eagerness to clear ourselves of evil, indignation over the hurts done to others, alarm over danger, longing for what is good, prudence about punishment for evil.

Help us have a real zeal for each other's good, visible within our hearts to you, our righteous Judge.

Let us find comfort in our forgiveness and acceptance of each other! Give us great joy in the pride we feel about each other! Grant that we may justify perfect confidence in each other!

In the name of Jesus I come, asking according to his authority. Amen.
