Holy Spirit, guide my thoughts, words and steps as I go through the cycles of my days. Teach me the Word. Lead me in God’s loving grace. Encourage my heart in times of stress. Hold me in times of grief and struggle. Point me to the Savior in the precious name and powerful authority of Jesus, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“I write these things to you about those who are trying to deceive you. But the anointing that you received from him abides in you, and you have no need that anyone should teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about everything, and is true, and is no lieā€”just as it has taught you, abide in him.” (1 John 2: 26-27 ESV)
