Daily reading and prayer

Friday 20 – Psalm 23:4  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Lord when the signs of our bodies show we are no longer in touch with this world we seek your hand to hold onto. Give us faith strong enough to take it.  Give us courage to open our eyes wide and see your face shining bright. We ask that tears of those who are left behind are dried and washed faces are cleansed as your grace has given us peace.
