Lenten Prayer #25: For the Fruit of Righteousness

Psalm 85:10-13
Mercy and truth have met together;
Righteousness and peace have kissed.
Truth shall spring out of the earth,
And righteousness shall look down from heaven.
Yes, the Lord will give what is good;
And our land will yield its increase.
Righteousness will go before Him,
And shall make His footsteps our pathway.

We ask that the life and righteousness of heaven will flourish on earth. Breathe life into our homes and workplaces. Walk before your people, Risen Christ. Guide us as we seek to follow in your footsteps, seeking ways to bring life where there was death.  May we continually bear the fruit of your divine character. Amen
