Almighty God, may your word fill our hearts so completely this day that it produces the fruit of your Spirit to witness and serve you as we reach out to others. May you lead us today to those who need to know they are loved by you, and may you lead those to us who help us learn of your grace and your mercy. Bring comfort and peace to all who are suffering in loneliness, or in illness. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
