Almighty God, to whom our thoughts and wishes are known before we speak them: Give us guidance and wise counsel in all important decisions we are about to make as your people, living and worshipping together in community. Let our choices be upbuilding and wholesome. Give us peace of mind. Don't let us be paralyzed by fear; by the "what-ifs." Grant that our lives reflect the joy and contentment of living in your amazing grace, and let your ways guide ours. In Jesus' name, Amen.
