You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself is the rock eternal.

Isaiah 26: 3-4 NIVUK

Gracious God, we lift our gaze to the rock of Catbells and the majestic peaks of the mountains beyond and we praise you for your mighty power and strength. Thank you that you surround us on every side with your steadfast love.  Lift our gaze beyond circumstances, to the strength and beauty of your love, and to your presence and enabling in our lives.

As we look at the clear, still water, we thank you gracious God, that you bring calm and your peace as we face the storms of life.

As we reflect on your mighty strength, your peace and steadfast love, we pray for those you have laid on our heart.  We place our hand in the hand of Jesus and ask you to lead us safely through this day. Amen.
