He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.

Ps 23:3 NIV

Gracious God, we come with thankfulness for your never-ending love.  At difficult times, when we don’t know which way to turn, or when we look at the sadness and troubles in our world, we thank you that your Holy Spirit guides us, helps us and prays with us.  We remember and reflect on the words that Jesus spoke:- “I am the way, the truth and the life.” (John 14:6 NIV)

Today, dear Lord, as we pray, we ask you to help us to keep our eyes, our mind and our heart fixed on your love in Jesus.  Refresh us with your Spirit of truth, courage and hope. In your great love and compassion be our rock and strength, and guide our thoughts and feet in ways of your love, justice and peace.

We pray for all those in need of your strength and peace today, that they may find comfort and solace in the love of God. Amen
