Heavenly Father, please shape my convictions by your word. Settle it deep in me that it might shape my thoughts and actions day by day. Fill me completely with the knowledge of your will that I may rejoice in your wonderful plan of salvation and walk in step with it. May my plans and aspirations swell up from your word. Help me not to trust to my own limited words but trust you to work through yours. May our group keep looking to Christ, plumbing the riches of your grace in him and rejoicing in his salvation.
