CHURCH PRAYER (October 2018)
Leader: Lord God, You are Lord of heaven and earth! You made the world and everything in it, by Your outstretched arm and great power. You Yourself give life and breath to mankind, and appointed the places and times we live.
People: All the gods of the nations are idols, but You are in the heavens and do as You please. Splendour and majesty are before You. Strength and beauty in Your sanctuary. Not to us, O Lord, but to Your name give glory!
Leader: You are the God of this city. You overlooked times of ignorance, and command men and women everywhere to repent. For You desire that none should perish. Thank You Lord that You are not far from us.
People: Turn our hearts to seek and find You! For You have fixed a day to judge the world in righteousness through Jesus Christ whom You appointed. You raised Him from the dead to give assurance to all.
Leader: Make us mighty in the Scriptures and fervent in faith. Give us courage to speak boldly and not be silent. Let Your word continue to increase and prevail mightily. For You are with us, and You have many people in this city.
People: Holy Spirit, come upon us! That all in this city will hear the word of the Lord. And Your Church will prevail over demonic powers and work unusual miracles. Let fear come upon all, and the name of Jesus magnified!
All: In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
