Commentary on this Week’s Prayer
Repentance is the act of turning our lives around and orienting ourselves towards the will of God for peace in justice in our world. So the fruits of that repentance can take the form of things like grace, mercy, forgiveness, peace, and joy. Are they visible in your life right now? If not, this is a great time for repentance.
