Tug - helping ships come to a safe harbour
Gladstone Qld   L Osburn
Loving and compassionate God you offer us support, faithfulness and deliverance if we are willing to seek you and to stay with you. You also show us how to be compassionate to those whose circumstances make it hard for them to accept you, keep you in their hearts and grow to maturity in faith. Help us step out with you, all our days, to share the love and compassion we have from you through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. Amen.
