Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever. Psalms 23:6
Abba, our loving Father, today, we hope to continuously see the signs of your deep and unfailing love. You have always been good to us in providing for our daily needs, the food we eat, the clothes we wear and the roof over our heads. You open doors of opportunities with great possibilities for us to gain knowledge and understanding about life, talents which we can use to realize our dreams, and strength to pursue and attain them for our prosperity. We are also greatful for the blessing of family and friends who are always on our side for comfort and support, providing immeasurable joy and happiness. Best of all, Father, you are there for us wherever we go and whatever situations we are in, specially during uncertain times in our lives. As we walk through the dark alleys where we cannot see clearly, when we do not know what to do, and are frightened that we might fall and get hurt, robbed and be killed, you are there to save us and protect us. We hear your sweet voice directing us and you as our light provides us a clear view of what is ahead of us. Your goodness and mercy follow us, that even we fall, you are there to raise us and restore our strength. When we sin, you forgive us and remove them as far as the east is from the west. Lord, we thank you for your grace that you drew us near you by the gift of faith, for the adoption for us to be your children and made us worthy to dwell in your House, which is your Most Holy Church. We pray, oh, Lord, that ‘though we suffer for a little while in this world, the crown of life shall be given to us upon your return. Amen.
