Good Lord, who sent Jesus to be the Shepherd of us all, our redemption and our protection: Direct us by your presence and watch over our paths with guiding love, that we may keep our hearts fixed on you and so follow in the paths of faith that we may come to where you would have us; Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
