Lord God, as our Shepherd may your strong hands ever lift us from our sinful straying ways. Keep reading the deepest longings of our hearts, and encourage us to abandon all our ways of rebellion, living only for ourselves and not caring for others first. Help us to assist our brothers and sisters in ways that lift them up spiritually and encourages them in faithfulness to you. Seek us out of our hiding and lost places and lead us to pastures of peace and safety. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
