Thursday of the Fifth Week of Easter
Stay with us, Lord.
Our fears and the world get in the way
and we don't always serve as your presence on this earth.
You know my heart, you know my love for you,
and you hold me in your warmest embrace
despite my wavering hope and courage.
Let me rely on you in every moment.
Guide my feet in the path of peace and
lead me to offer your love to those on the margins.
It is then that I will really feel you in my heart
and my joy will be complete.
May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.
