Jesus my Teacher,
guide me along your way,
and help me to piece together
the jigsaw of life in your kingdom.
When I make decisions,
lead me to the heart of the matter,
and when I face conflict,
do not let my own panic drown out
the still, small voice of your wisdom.
you lead us by ways we do not know,
through joy and sorrow,
through victory and defeat,
beyond our understanding.
Give us faith to see your guiding hand
in all things;
that being neither lifted up
by seeming success,
nor cast down by seeming failure,
we may press forward wherever you lead.
