I instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble. Proverbs 4:11–12, NIV
O Mighty God, you are our omnipotent, omniscient, Living God, slow to anger, abounding in mercy and rich in love. Help us to stay steadfast to your love and increase your mercy towards us, filling us with your grace. Your Son Jesus has taught us the way to follow. Allow our steps to be unwavering, as we follow the light of your truth. We ask forgiveness of all our offences, knowing that they have become a chasm between us and your love. We beg for repentance for defiling your creation, for destroying your beautiful earth and invoking your wrath. Have mercy on your erring children, lead us out of the darkness into which we have stumbled through our own recklessness and bring us into your healing light. We know that you are good all the time and a keeper of your promises. We entrust ourselves to your loving care, as in Jesus’ Name we pray.
