Gracious Lord, there are so many people who do not know You, who are far away from you, who are aware that something or some ONE is missing from their lives, but they do not know or recognize that it is You that they need… Because the lives of these people hang in the balance between a blessed eternity with You or a cursed eternity without You, please, dear Jesus, give us eyes that see and ears that hear, so that when we find ourselves standing in line next to, or ordering a meal from, getting our car fixed, or our blood pressure taken by one of these lost souls…please, dear Jesus, help us to discern their true spiritual condition and, by the power of Your Spirit alive and active in us, help us to listen and speak to them in helpful and appropriate ways so that they might actually HEAR from and SEE in us why You are so vitally important for them. In Your name we ask it. Amen.
Bless Your Church, O Lord, with complete reliance upon your grace and mercy and love so that we live, in this world and in our various vocations, as people who are forgiven and free. In Your name we pray. Amen.
We pray, Heavenly Father, for all those who labor in Your harvest field. Give to Your called and commissioned workers boldness and courage to faithfully and effectively serve the congregation, community, and cultural context to which they are called. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
