PRAYERS FOR THE CHURCH
Dearly beloved in Christ, let us thank God for His faithfulness towards us and use this opportunity to pray for the entire body of Christ that the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ will continue to sustain us in this present world.
Faithful God, thank you for the grace you have given us to bring before you our common petition; it is our prayers and sincere desire that you bless the church below just as the church above, may we who bear witness to your loving kindness bring hope, peace and comfort to others.
Inspire the leadership of your church to live by christian examples for all to follow, fill them with the fear and knowledge of God, bless their homes and fill them with the hope of your return.
Remember oh Lord those at the mission field, good Lord, grant them Your protection and love, be glorified through them and may all men be drawn to Your kingdom through their works and ministry. Deliver them from accident, tempest, fear, death, sickness and from all forms of peril.
May all who look upto you in genuineness of faith know that You are near, give hope to the hopeless, love to the brokenhearted, peace where there is anxiety and finally by your mercy, cleans us by the washing of Your Holy Word that we may be worthy of presentation before our God and Father; in living we will live to please You and in dying we will be made partakers with the saints in your presence forevermore through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
