Prayer

Heavenly Father,

We give thanks, as we meet this day, for the friendship, fellowship and support we share with each other.

We pray for those of our number who cannot be with us today, for whatever reason.

We look to you for strength in the travails of our daily lives, knowing that your love is freely given to us all.

Merciful Father, guide us and bless us in all that we say and do, this day and every day.

Amen.
