Theme: "I am the way, the truth, and the life".
Bible Reading: John 14:1-6
God our Father, we lift our eyes to the hills for we know that our help comes from you our Saviour. Oh Lord, you never sleep and you are always at the centre of the universe. You keep us safe in the shelter of your Hand and you are ever-present from our going out to our coming. All we are, and all we have is from you, O Lord, and we are so grateful for your endless love and kindness.
Heavenly Father, we have sinned against you and against others. Unclutter our lives, Lord we consume too much and expect too much. Give us a perspective to see this world through others’ eyes. We need compassion O Lord; where there is a need to play our part and not turn aside. Bless us with gratitude for all that we have, all your blessings, and all life’s gifts.
Amazing Grace how sweet the sound that saved someone like us. We once were lost but Lord you found us and once we were blind but now we see. We see your arms of love stretched out upon that cross of Calvary.
O Lord, sometimes we think you have forgotten us – when we suffer pain that doesn’t go away; when things appear to get worse instead of better; when we are alone and no one seems to care. It’s as if you hide away from us, and we feel weak, bereft and defeated.
And yet, O Lord, you have been good to us. All of life, you have been beside us. Through troubles and misfortunes, you have upheld us.
We rely on your constant love and care. May you strengthen and save us, O Lord, and we shall forever rejoice and be glad in you. In Jesus’s name, we pray all this with praise and thanksgiving. Amen.
I wish you a blessed week!
