O blessed Jesus, our redeemer and deliverer, you are all that I will ever need in this world. Through the darkest hour, you become the light I need to guide me. When the storms of life bear down on me, I come to you and by the still waters, you gently lead me. I know that you will never leave or forsake me as I seek your will for my life. Teach me to be more like you and to love others as you love me. Thank you for this day where beauty is greater than the unlovely that we witness. Always and forever, Alleluia Jesus, I pray. Amen.
