Gracious God, at the start of a new week, we place our lives and the lives of those we love, into Your care. We know that we are loved by You immeasurably, and so whatever the challenges we may face in the week ahead, we journey with You. Help us to care for others at this time, in very practical ways. And amidst all this Lord, help us to witness to You, to remember our calling to declare the Good News of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Lord God, in the days to come we walk with You, and for you. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
