Prayer for the Week (October 17-October 23, 2021)

Let us pray to the Lord who bends close
to hear our prayer:
Lord our God, you guard us
under the shadow of your wings
and search into the depths of our hearts.
Remove the blindness that prevents us
from knowing you
and relieve the fear
that hides us from your sight.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.                                        (Sunday Missal, alt.)
