A Prayer for the Evening

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

Thank you, Diane.

Sally said...

Amen, I might just use that this morning ( if I may)

Diane said...

Sally, you may. it's not mine, it's from our worship book, and originally (I think, from the Book of Common Prayer.)

I have loved this prayer for a long time. You sound like you have a lot going on...?
