Today’s Prayer

Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” —John 20:21 (NIV)

Dear heavenly Father, thank you for the peace and joy that is ours through Jesus’ death and resurrection.  Now that our feet might be back on solid ground, after the joyous excitement of the empty tomb on Easter Sunday, push us in the direction in which we will best serve you.  Do not allow us to tarry, but just joyfully follow you, wherever you are sending us, using the unique gifts you have blessed us with.  May we listen quietly for your voice and follow it. Amen.
