For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty Saviour.  He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears.

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT

We breathe in your presence,
We breathe in your peace,
We are still before you,
We find out niche,
That space where we
Can listen and speak,
To you, loving God,
As we nestle at your feet.

Loving God, we praise you that you are among us by your Holy Spirit. Thank you that you take great delight in us and rejoice in us with gladness. Thank you that you calm our fears, so great is your love for us.

This season, whether we are alone, or with others, and in all our circumstances, may we be held in the peace, the joy, the hope and the love of Jesus our Saviour – Emmanuel, God with us. Amen.
