Reflection & Prayer

Proverbs 29:18 (NLT)When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild. But whoever obeys the law is joyful.

Lord God: teach me your ways and guide me in the path of righteousness –

+ that I may live a joyful, satisfying, life according to your word

+ that I may accept correction and provide stability for those who depend on me

+ that I may help those who can’t help themselves – the poor, the weak, the defenseless

+ that I may pay attention to the counsel of godly people of good will

+ that I may think before I speak and wait on your Spirit for what to say

+ that I may humble myself before you and trust in you alone

Lord God: you are my ever present hope and help in times of trouble; hear these desires of my heart – that I may love and serve you as a faithful witness to Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in unity with the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

“Behold Our God” – Praise And Harmony


Blessing – (Northumbrian Community)

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you, wherever He may send you. May He guide you through the wilderness, protect you through the storm. May He bring you home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown you. May He bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.

+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen!
