The Thought for the Day
Human life is guided and influenced in various ways. Amidst social, cultural, political, moral and religious norms,
obligations and influences to human life, how do one maintain the balance needed and remain faithful to God’s will.
Lord Jesus, we thank you for the word that has enabled us to understand better the will of the Father. May your spirit
enlighten our actions and grant us the strength to practice that which your word has revealed to us. We make our prayers through Christ our Lord.
