pray for our struggles in our churches

by Colleen ()

Lord, please heal our church and turn the division that people have been enticed to take part in to cease. Holy Spirit, stir up in us a true heart of compassion for one another. Stir up an unrelenting urge to prayer over our pastors, administrative staff, ministry leaders, caretakers, every one of us in church, those missing church, or sick at home, and in the community that surrounds our neighborhood. Cause that urge for prayer to lead to doing right by others, in all circumstances, and to let go of petty disagreements, envy, resentment and blame. Holy Spirit, guide us to listen to pastoral instruction and discipleship training no matter our age or experience in church. Make us all like eager young “Timothy’s” in the New Testament, taking our training in the word back to you in prayer for guidance in how to walk as Christ, in order that we may rightly glorify you and your holy name. We ask this from you also that we might, with renewed and pure hearts, entice those outside of the church to feel a longing to come home to you~ and to know that is what you want most from us; to be vessels of your loving light, irresistable to those burdened by the dark, so that they would return to you and declare your majesty to all who would hear. In your beautiful name we pray, in thankfulness for being heirs to your throne, not by our doing, but by yours alone, Amen.
