Prayer for our church

Lord Jesus,

I pray for your children, my brothers and sisters, all around the world.

May we who are hungry be filled,
that we might offer others the Bread of Life.

May we who are hurting be healed,
that we might lead others to the Great Physician.

May we who are lonely be comforted,
that we might introduce others to the Friend of sinners.

May we who are imprisoned be freed,
that we might convey others to the Victor over death.

May we who are inadequate be filled,
that we might reveal to others the Almighty God.

May your Name receive the glory.
May your kingdom come and your will be done.

  1. You wrote this? Very nice.

    Our friend Ron has a closing he always prays. It started on day as they drove into the barrio in Mexico late at night and the children came out of the woodwork when the truck stopped hoping for something to eat.

    He prays: Father may all the little children have something to eat, a warm place to sleep, and someone to love them.
