Sweet Shepherd,

You lead and guide,

You walk alongside,

You prepare, you feed, you call,

all of your sheep,

even those of us who are lost,

those of us who stray constantly,

those of us who stay close to your comforting staff.

We are grateful for the lush green pastures of our lives, and we pause now to offer our thanksgivings for the goodnesses in our lives…

There are so many who walk in the shadows of fear and suffering and despair,and we pause now, to offer our prayers for the broken and bleeding places in this world…

We also offer our prayers for the sheep of our own flocks, in our families and friends, in this our church and our community…(pause)

O Sweet Shepherd,

We have all we need,

as we live in You.

Amen.
