Prayer Focus




Loving shepherd; in the company of friends you restore my soul.

With lovingly prepared food you restore my soul.

With a gently flowing brook you restore my soul.

With a winding path you restore my soul.

With lush green fields and autumn coloured trees you restore my soul.

With the sun breaking through the clouds you restore my soul.

In the encounter with a stranger you restore my soul.

With the joy of reaching the top of a hill you restore my soul.

In the beauty of the deep red earth you restore my soul.

With the prayers of the faithful you restore my soul.

I drink deeply from the well of life and my cup overflows.
