Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
My hope comes from him.
Truly, He is my rock and my salvation;
He is my fortress, I shall not be shaken.
Trust in him at all times;
Pour out your hearts to him,
For God is our refuge.

Ps 62: 5,6,8 NIVUK

Every day I am here,
Ready for you to draw near,
To share your joys and sorrows,
To offer a listening ear.

To guide you in the way forward,
To think and plan ahead,
To respond to the needs of the moment,
To lead you in the next step.

Gracious God, King of creation, Lord of all. The world and everything in it was made by You and belongs to You.  We praise you that you are a God of strength and power, of might and justice, of love, tenderness and forgiveness.

Gracious God, we draw our strength and direction from your limitless love and resources.  When life is shaken, and however things seem, we remember that You are our sure place of hope, security and salvation; our refuge and our peace. Help us dear Lord to keep our focus on Jesus and trust in his eternal love.  May your Spirit guide our prayers as we still our souls, reflect on your love and open our hearts before you…. Amen
