CHURCH PRAYER (Jan 2020)
Lord Jesus, thank You for a brand new year! You created us and gave us life. You alone decided the periods and places we are to live. Go with and before us into the future. For in You we live and move and have our being!
Lord, take our personal discipleship deeper! We ask that Your Spirit will lead us every step of the way. Make us strong and courageous for the road ahead. Keep us away from temptation, on the straight and narrow for Jesus!
Lord, take our family discipleship higher! We pray that husbands and fathers would love and lead well. And wives and mothers would support and submit as unto You. Let singles be kept pure and purposeful, and the young be trained in Your ways!
Lord, take our disciplemaking further! Send us to proclaim and show that Your Kingdom is here. Through both words and deeds, signs and wonders, cause Your Spirit to turn the hearts of many more to You. And future generations may praise the Lord!
In this Year of Greater Discipleship, may we see You more clearly, love You more dearly and follow You more nearly! In Jesus’ name, amen.
