Lord, my Rock and Redeemer, thank you that your promises are sure, you are faithful, I can rely on you. Help me to lead with a compassionate heart, filled with kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Let me be an example to your people in speech and in character. May your peace, which surpasses all understanding, guard my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
