Merciful Savior, may I take your hand? Guide me through the minefield of current world tragedy. Help me know truth from the lies. Keep me from falling into thought traps and mind warps by focusing all my attention on you. I am thankful for the songs I wake up humming in my head. These words by Patsy Cline bless me today. May I sing them forever,

“Just a closer walk with Thee

Grant it, Jesus, is my plea

Daily walking close to Thee

Let it be, dear Lord, let it be”

I pray in the precious name and powerful authority of Jesus, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7 ESV)
