Trust and Obey

      Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord, Psalm 119:1

      Let us pray [that everything we do will be guided by God's law of love.]
      God our Father, you have promised to remain for ever with those who do what is just and right. Help us to live in your presence. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. AAPB
      Almighty God, you gave the law to guide our lives: grant that we may never shrink from your commandments, but, as we are taught by your Spirit, may fulfil you law in perfect love; through Christ our Lord and Master, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
