Father, I thank you for your provision and your presence with us as participants and leaders of the Hope and Healing Bible Study partner together to bring your peace to troubled hearts.
You provide insight, comfort, truth and grace for each individual attendee and leader as we search your Word for the answers we need. You receive the little portion that each of us brings to the table and You multiply it into blessing for all.
You attend to us all as we drive to the building, as we come in the door, as we study and apply your Word, as we relate to each other and as we take it all home with us. Most importantly, You remain close to us in the quiet moments that follow, when we might otherwise have believed we were alone.
May your peace be with us all and with any new friends who might be considering taking this step.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
