Praying for our Denomination
For the Week:
Revealing God, as the Star of Bethlehem guided the wise of long ago to the light of the world, Jesus Christ, so guide your church in this season by the light of your love to glorify you, engage the mission and serve our neighbors. We pray this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
For General Conference Delegates:
Holy triune God, Your very nature is connection, communion and mission. Guide and strengthen the delegates to the 2019 General
Conference to become an incarnate sign of your nature and
so model it before the whole Church. Strengthen them in body, mind and spirit for the work that lies ahead. Quicken all of their sensibilities. Amen.
For the Mission of the Church:
Missionary God, You relentlessly pursue us for relationship.
You unceasingly love us. Send us with faith, courage and compassion into the world as both sign and invitation of the transforming relationship available to all through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
For the Unity of the Church:
Gift giving God,
Open us to receive, relish and luxuriate in the gift of unity.
We confess that we have not always been thankful recipients
of your generosity. Deliver us from our sectarian ways born in idolatry and nurtured in hubris. Generate in us a yearning to live Your Oneness, that we be one, so that the world might believe.
We pray in the name of our savior Jesus, who was and is one
with you. Amen.
For the Unity of The United Methodist Church:
We believe that in Christ Jesus, you have and still are tearing
down the dividing walls of our hostility.Look upon your church called United Methodist with mercy, compassion and forgiveness.
You alone are our peace and our hope. Make us one in glorifying you, in proclaiming your name throughout the cosmos and in extending your mission of new creation everywhere. Amen
