READING Psalm 23
Discerner of hearts,
You look beneath our outward appearance
And see your image in each of us.
Banish in us the blindness
That prevents us from recognizing truth,
So we may see the world through your eyes
And with the compassion of Jesus Christ who redeems us.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me.
