Prayers in the Wilderness Day 42

This was the closing prayer for this months Horizons Bible Study (Presbyterian Womens’ Circles) on 1 Peter 5 and 2 John:

Chief Shepherd,
for your tender care of us, your lambs;
for your willing example
of humble servanthood;
we give thanks and praise to the one who calls us,
for it is the Voice that we recognize,
and God’s pastures that we graze
that we might be fed the word of truth.

Shelter us from the roaring lion,
that in resisting him,
we might be restored, supported, strengthened, and established.
Amen.
