Heavenly Father, You are the good shepherd. You have loved Your sheep, as no one else has and You have laid down Your life that none would perish. As our shepherd Lord watch over us and guide us: when we are weak and troubled Lord, lead us into peace. When our hearts condemn us, restore our souls that we may once again rest in Your presence. When we do not know how to love one another, may we look to Your sacrifice as our example. When we fear the evil of this world, let us be comforted for You have already conquered death. Let our belief be only in Your son, that we would live in You and Your spirit would live in us.
