CHURCH PRAYER (Nov 2019)
Leader: Heavenly Father, You are our covenant-keeping God! You are faithful to Your promises and Your Word does not return to You empty. You promise forgiveness to those who repent and are contrite before You.
All: Great are Your faithfulness and mercy, O LORD!
Men: Lord Jesus, You are faithful even to the cross. You clothe those who receive You with salvation and righteousness.
You lead those who follow You out of darkness into Your everlasting light.
All: Great is Your loving kindness to us!
Women: Spirit of the Sovereign LORD, You teach and lead us into all truth. You convict us to repent. You remind us to turn away from worthless idols, and to turn to God as our only refuge. You are our ever-present Help and Guide.
All: Great is the hope we have in You, O God!
All: Sovereign LORD, by Your strength, enable us to proclaim the Lord’s favour and set captives free. That more may turn to You as their only hope. May Your glory be the passion of Your church, both now and forevermore!
In Jesus’ name, amen.
