I keep my eyes always on the Lord, with him at my right hand I will not be shaken 

Ps 16:8 NIV

Come to me
I am here
I know your needs
Do not fear

I will draw
Close to you
Hold you up
And see you through

Times of trouble
Times of strife
Times of sadness
And difficulties in life

Trust in me
I understand
I lead with love
As I take your hand

Find peace In my nearness
Help in my strength
Comfort in my arms
Hope in my defence

God of love, as we rest in your presence, we bring to mind your words of assurance and promises in the Bible…

So do not fear, for I am with you.  Do not be dismayed for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand
(Is 41:10 NIV)

Gracious God, You know and understand suffering and all our difficulties, concerns and anxieties. Help us to place them in your eternal hands, for your love is faithful and trustworthy.

Loving God, draw us near to your loving presence by your Spirit.  May we pray, bless, support and care for each other with the love You have given us in Jesus. Amen
