Holy Lord, help us to live in a reverent and holy way. May Your holy Word be imprinted on our minds and may our lives become testimonies of our faith in You. Allow us to see You in our neighbours and to be a place of refuge for those that are suffering. May our words console and our actions comfort. I pray for all souls, especially those most in need of Your mercy.
Teach us and guide us Lord to honour You always!
“Come, my children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
Whoever of you loves life
and desires to see many good days,
keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from speaking lies.
Turn from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.
The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous
and his ears are attentive to their cry;
the face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
he delivers them from all their troubles.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
A righteous man may have many troubles,
but the Lord delivers him from them all;
he protects all his bones,
not one of them will be broken.
Evil will slay the wicked;
the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
The Lord redeems his servants;
no one will be condemned who takes refuge in him.”
Psalm 34: 11-22
