Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground. Psalm 143:10
O Great and Mighty God, Whose Spirit fills the heavens and the earth, we are filled with the deepest gratitude and our hearts are overflowing with joy, that you are our Father and that in you we have a refuge wherever we must go as we serve you on earth. We thank you that your life can be revealed in us, flowing through us so that the world may be blessed by you, our loving and caring Father.
Protect us Lord, and strengthen us in times of tribulation and sorrow. When we traverse new paths, may your Spirit guide and show us the right way, that everything may lead to you and to your glory and honor. Father, through your Spirit unite us in the unshakable hope that your will shall at last be done on earth as in heaven, to attain peace and to be favored by your unconditional love.
Grant O Lord, that we may walk through life in praise, thanks and jubilation, rejoicing in the certainty that in all circumstances, your Holy Spirit is abiding in us, strengthening us and making our paths straight. By your abounding love, your righteousness and faithfulness in keeping your Covenant with us, we move ahead humbly, firmly and obediently following your Holy Will, in the Name of Jesus the Lord. Amen
