Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Dear Lord and Heavenly Father,
Thank you for your loving words that encourage and guide us. Help us to turn to you when things in our lives go wrong. Your love and mercy will lift us up and draw us out of whatever situation we are in as you have your guiding hand on us moment by moment.
