Dear God and Father of us all,
Prepare our hearts as we seek You today and come near in prayer.
Urge us on in the walking of the path that You have called each of us to walk with You, O God.
Remind us of Your love for each of us that brings joy in this journey we call life.
Prepare us to know You better as You teach us today from Your word. Lead us in the way of repentance to receive Your mercy. Forgive us, Lord, of our sin.
Oppose the unrighteous in us, O Lord, and help us to renew our way of walking with You, in purpose and in love.
Send us forward into this world as lights shining the way in the darkness as we reflect You to this world.
Enliven our spirits, O God, as You show us how to worship, how to love one another, how to teach others Your ways and how to fellowship with You through Your Son and Your Holy Spirit.
For all this and much, much more, we offer our prayer with thanksgiving and humility in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
The Path Continues…
