John 14:27
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid”.

Lord Jesus, Prince of Peace, we take a moment to come before you and quieten and calm our thoughts this day. Help us to remember that You are the One in whom we can put our trust, You are the One who will walk with us, to help us deal with the matters of the day ahead. Please give us peace of mind and a sense of Your very being, assured of Your presence with us and Your love for us.
We lift before You anyone we are concerned about this day and place them into the safety and security of Your hands. In Your name we pray, Amen.

In a moment of silence we turn our thoughts to God and we take our strength from Him with a reflection from Margaret Langdon.
