27 OPENING PRAYER Heavenly Father, With the gifts of the Holy Spirit may we be inspired to move into our futures with promise. May your spirit living inside us fill us with love, Forgiveness and understanding, helping us to become more like Christ your Son. Grant this through Jesus our Lord. Amen.

28 WE LISTEN (Philippians 4: 8-9) A reading from Paul’s Letter to the Philippians. Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing the things that you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you. The word of the Lord. ALL:Thanks be to God.

May our lives be pleasing for you and may we always share in your blessings, and live in your spirit, as we continue along our life journey. We make this prayer through Christ our Lord. AMEN.
