Devotionals are short essays written by GSLC members and staff that explore the ways the Holy Spirit works within our every day lives.  There are several ways we invite you to use these devotionals:

  • Make them a part of a prayer practice - read a devotion and consider the ways that Christ has worked similarly in your life or works in unexpected ways.
  • Make them a part of a journaling practice - read a devotion and journal about what the Holy Spirit is stirring in you as you reflect on the essay.
  • Use them as a reminder that God works in all things, the bad and the good.

With over 400 available devotions, you can use these daily, weekly, or monthly.  It's up to you!  We just hope that by reading these inspiring stories provided by Good Shepherd's flock you are able to better see where Jesus is present in all things!  Thank you to all of our members that have provided devotionals throughout the past couple of years!

I share with you a prayer written by Pastor Melissa Hinnen

Based on John 20:19-31 (yesterday’s Gospel Reading)



Resurrected Christ

You show the path of life.

In your presence there is fullness of joy;

In your right hand are pleasures forever more

Breathe Peace

entering locked doors of


Breathe Peace

Healing painful wounds of

virus infected lungs-systemic racism-loss-grief

Breathe Peace

Displacing fear of

illness-financial instability-uncertainty-“the other” people

Breathe Peace

filling empty arms of those who are

yearning for touch-isolated-lonely-forgotten

Breathe Peace

into my soul

move me with your spirit

show me signs of your presence so that through my belief

my life may

Breathe Peace

entering locked doors

healing painful wounds

displacing fear

filling open arms

receiving your Holy Spirit my heart is glad,

my soul rejoices and my body rests secure.  Amen
