Jesus tells us that if we love him, we will follow his commandments. If we do that, he will pray to the Father, who will send the Holy Spirit to live within us. We will not be left leaderless or orphaned. God will be with us.
You may find the following prayer helpful:
Help us to follow Jesus, O God. Grant us grace to be obedient to your will. Help us to see which way to go. Help us to make right choices. Help us to love one another. Help us to show your love to those in need. Help us to be Christ to those around us, that your Name might be glorified. Amen.
