Let us pray … Walk with me, good and loving God, as I journey through life. May I take Your hand and be led by Your Holy Spirit. Fill me, inspire me, free me to respond generously to Your call. For I believe You desire my deepest joy, and it is only in Your company that my soul will be satisfied and my life will find its meaning and purpose. Amen
