Father of all mercy, comfort Your beloved in times of deep distress. When the waters of adversity swirl like white rapids around my soul, help me to navigate the rushing troubles until I can sail on the calm seas of Your presence once again. Take me into the depths of the peace You offer me, Jesus, even when all around me distracts me from that gift. Grant me the power through Your Holy Spirit to see into the distance of eternity until my perspective is fully aligned with Yours. My strength comes from You. My agility to cross treacherous terrain only comes when I let Your hand guide me. Let me follow You all the days of my life, Lord Jesus, because You are my Good Shepherd. In gratitude, my heart overflows because You found me and did not leave me to travel alone. Under the Word given in John 10:11 and the authority of Christ, I humbly pray.
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd
lays down his life for the sheep.
John 10:11, ESV
