Psalm 33:20-22           New International Version
We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. May your unfailing love be with us, Lord, even as we put our hope in you.

Gracious God, at the end of a week when issues of trust and integrity dominate our news headlines, we turn to you and give thanks that You are the one in whom we can place our trust. You invite us to take quiet moments and spend them in Your presence. You assure us that You are the One who wants to heal us and restore us with your love and your grace. You promise us that you are always there to guide us as we journey forward, even when the road ahead is rocky and difficult to navigate. You pour out Your Holy Spirit to anoint, enable and equip us to follow You and be the people You would have us be. And so, as the week draws to a close, we rest assured that there is nothing, in all eternity, that can separate us from Your love, and we take a moment of quiet to reflect, give thanks, and place our Trust in You. Amen.

‘And I will trust in You alone,
And I will trust in You alone,
For Your endless mercy follows me,
Your goodness will lead me home’.
