In darkness and in light,
in trouble and in joy,
help us, heavenly Father,
to trust your love,
to serve your purpose,
and to praise your name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
(Older students might like to read more of Job.)
This prayer asks God to be with us at all times, and through all
our feelings whether they are good, bad, happy or sad - whether we
are in trouble or joy. See again that we have three things to do;
trust, serve and praise.
