“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His lovingkindness is
everlasting.  Give thanks to the God of
gods, for His lovingkindness is everlasting.”

Lord Jesus, You who brought light
and life into the world, guide me this day according to the Father’s

salvation.  Guide me, Lord Jesus, in the
way I need to go.  Amen.
