Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground. Psalm 143:10
Almighty Father, Mighty and Immortal God, Whose Spirit fills heaven and earth, we thank you that you are our Father and that in you we have a refuge wherever we may go, as we serve you on earth. We are full of grateful praise and worship, for your indwelling Spirit, Who shows us the path we must follow, to be one with you. We are filled with awe, that your life can be revealed in us as we abide by you, and can flow through us so that the world may be blessed by you, and be transformed to righteousness.
Protect us and strengthen us in times of travail and sorrow. When we travel on unknown paths, give us your Spirit to lead the way, that our steps may not falter, and that our faith and trust increase, thereby leading to the good and honor of your Name. Father, through your Spirit unite us in the unshakable hope that your Holy Will shall at last be done on earth as in heaven.
Grant that we may rejoice in the utmost certainty that whatever happens, our paths may be level and firm by your love and your faithfulness. Teach us Lord, and give us confidence in the Truth that even if we stray, your Mercy and Compassion and our repentance will lead us back to you, as we have full faith that you will never abandon us and will gently direct us back to you through the Power of your Spirit, in Christ our Lord. Amen
