Today, we pray for ‘pretend Christians’
Lord Jesus, today we bring to the foot of Your cross all those are putting up a show of piety. Lord, when You walked the earth, You hated hypocrisy and called it the yeast of the Pharisees. We pray that You cleanse Your church and its people of any trace of power abuse, greed, hypocrisy, deception and lies. Tear down the walls of evil – anything that fights Your rule of loving You and our neighbour. Make us know that the punishment for deceivers will be great from a God who abhors shams. Let true repentance happen and let us not make a mockery of our faith. Bless our Pope in fighting His battle, for Him. Amen.
