Father God,
We don't know what will happen tomorrow
and oftentimes we don't understand
what happened yesterday.
But You desire our blind faith; our obedience.
You desire that we lift one another up;
that the gospel would be alive in us.
We pray that You would strengthen our faith
and give us the courage to persevere
through the tough times with thanksgiving.
We praise You, honor You, and worship You.
In Jesus' name,
Amen.

Holy Father,
We want to know You better.
We pray that You show us Your desires for our lives.
May Your Spirit keep us on the path that leads to You.
May we be people of peace who build each other up
and promote Christ-like behavior.
Above all, may Your will be done
in us, for us, and through us.
In Jesus' name,
Amen.

Lord God,
We pray that You would soften our hearts
to accept Your teaching today.
We know that anything is possible with You.
Amazingly, You use sinners like us
to do the work of Your kingdom.
Open our ears to hear the Spirit's call.
Equip us to be ready to share Your love
and Your word with those we encounter.
In Jesus' name,
Amen.

Holy Father,
In Your great mercy, You've given us a living hope
through the resurrection of our Savior Jesus,
and an inheritance that can never fade.
You give all this freely - out of Your immense love.
You only desire our love, faith and obedience in return.
May our worship be fully to Your glory; praising Your kindness.
In Jesus' name,
Amen.

Dear Lord,
We thank You for Your word.
May we boldly speak Your word,
and the peace it brings,
in our homes and in our communities.
Keep us safe from those who oppose us,
and help us to respond to them with love.
We pray for peace in our nation,
and that all would turn to You.
May the good news - the gospel of Jesus -
fill us all with joy.
In Jesus' holy name we pray.
Amen.

Holy Father,
We thank You for those who have gone before us;
who have helped us, who loved us,
and who showed us the way to You.
We thank You for Jesus, through whom the curtain
was torn so that we can enter into Your presence.
We thank You for Your Holy Spirit, through whom
we can learn, grow, and come together as one.
We pray to You in Jesus' name.
Amen.

Father in heaven,
We praise You for the cross of Christ.
At the cross we leave our selfishness, our
unrighteous anger, and our thoughts of ill-will.
We pray that Christ would live in our hearts and
give us the spirit of generosity, patience, and goodwill.
May we learn more about You each day and through
that knowledge, learn to love more like You do.
In Jesus' holy name,
Amen.
