A Prayer For The Journey

Life with God in Jesus Christ is a gift and it is a journey.

Home exchanges can help remind us that this is so.

The following prayer was included recently during worship at our local church.

It is one of those wondrous and blessed gifts that attend the simple gathering together with other Christians for Sabbath-keeping.  How often the time spent in Sunday worship yields such fruit!  What a difference it makes to have our perspective reframed by prayers like the following (from Evangelical Lutheran Worship)   as we go back to work on Monday morning:

O God, you have called your servants
to ventures of which we cannot see the ending,
by paths as yet untrodden,
through perils unknown.
Give us faith to go out with good courage,
not knowing where we go,
but only that your hand is leading us
and your love supporting us;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
