Bless us O Lord, You who are the peace of all things calm, the place to hide from harm, the light that shines in the dark, the heart’s eternal spark, the door that’s open wide welcoming all to come inside. This day I call to myself and all those reading this Your strength to direct us, Your wisdom to guide us, Your vision to enlighten us, Your ear to our hearing, Your word to our speaking, Your hand to uphold us, Your pathway before us, and Your shield to protect us. In Jesus’ name! Amen!  ✝
