Our Good Shepherd, thank You for the weapon of Your Word, the Bible. Help us to wield it in all life’s moments—not only when we’re afraid. May it be a source of strength in our weakness, a source of joy in our despair, a source of peace in all of life’s storms. Thank You, Jesus, for being The Word and for coming to dwell in our hearts. Please lead us on paths of righteousness, for Your name’s sake. Indeed, for Your glory and the good of others. Amen.
