CHURCH PRAYER (September 2018)
Leader: Father God, You are the living God! You made the heavens and the earth and all things in them. You allowed the nations to walk in their ways, but You did not leave them without witness.
People: You gave us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying our hearts with food and gladness. You caused the sun to rise and the rain to fall on the evil and the good. You are our good and great God!
Leader: You sent Your son Jesus Christ as Your witness through His words and deeds. It is by His grace through faith that we are saved. Raise us up now as servants of the Most High God, to proclaim the way of salvation.
People: Lord, strengthen our souls that we may increase in faith! Make us ready to speak boldly for Jesus and bear witness to the Word of Your grace. Grant signs and wonders to be done through our hands!
Leader: You who know our hearts bore witness to us by giving us Your Spirit, making no distinction among us and having cleansed our hearts by faith. Lead us by Your Spirit to all whom You have prepared to receive salvation.
People: Through our witness, may the rest of the mankind seek the Lord. Open the hearts of men and women from every nation who are called by Your name. Grant salvation to them and their households!
All: In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
