God, our Father, Come to us this day with your Spirit to guide us to live the rest of our earthly life not by human desires but by your will. May the Holy Spirit reassure us and support us in the truth of Christ to be our truth, our way and our life, so that we can grow to become more and more like your Son every day. Fill our hearts and minds with trust in you so that we can support others in their faith in you when their spirits are low or when their suffering is overcoming them. Through Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord, we pray. Amen.
