OT Esther 4:1-17
Gospel Mark 1:40-45
God of the margins, the centre of our life and hope, we thank you for manifesting your love for the outcastes and the marginalized by empathizing with them. We thank you for sending your Son Jesus Christ to empower the margins with the good news of the kingdom of God that embraces all. Help us to be committed to your calling to bring wholeness to the communities we serve, through Jesus Christ our Lord who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God now and for ever more. Amen.
