and our lives become a perfect offering through your blessed Spirit.
May we flourish with your creation
as we work with your grace for the good of all you have made.

28th March

Dear Lord our Shepherd, when we were in green pastures
we confess we sometimes forgot your presence
because we could see the next blade of grass.
But you led us gently and we delighted at the sound of your voice.
Now, we are in a dark valley and it would be very sheep-like to be
scared and scattered.
But we will fear no evil because you are with us.
Direct us with your rod and rescue us with your staff.
You give us strength and courage.
Calm us as we depend on you.
And may our ears strain for every whisper,
and our hearts thrill at every call of your love.
And may your goodness and mercy follow us as a rear-guard,
now and for evermore.

29th March

The thought of my affliction and my homelessness is wormwood and gall!
My soul continually thinks of it and is bowed down within me.
But this I call to mind,and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness .
‘The Lord is my portion,’  says my soul,
‘therefore I will hope in him.’

30th March

Blessed are you, Lord God of our salvation,
to you be praise and glory for ever.
As a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief your only Son was lifted up that he might draw the whole world to himself.
May we walk this day in the way of the cross and always be ready to share its weight, declaring your love for all the world.
Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Blessed be God for ever.

31st March

May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort.
He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others.
When they are troubled,
we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.

(2 Corinthians 1:2-4)
