A Prayer


Dear Lord,

You are blessed and beautiful. Only You can change hearts and minds. Only You hold the universe in your hands. Only You are perfect. God, Lord, Jesus, Savior you are waiting for us to be broken by the cries of the lost crying out in the desert. The lost are thirsty for You. Jesus came to seek and save the lost and has commissioned us to do the same. We, the church, are seed planters and harvesters. God I pray that we would not stand by but be a follower, not just a believer, of You. God I pray that we would live lives of obedience and servitude. Never proud but always humble and getting up when we stumble. God You are the one we are striving after and God just let us be a church that follows, obeys, and loves Your Way. God You have called us to be on the straight and narrow. You are the controller and sustainer and we praise you. Let us not be held back by bias or by culture. Let us love with a love that we can only get from You. Let us love the homeless, the drug addicts, the seekers, the sceptics, the gay, the straight, the rich, the poor, the dirty, the clean, the sane, the insane, the lonely, the old, the sick, the weak, the downtrodden, the unloved, the children, the teenagers, the young adults, the working class, the unemployed, the CEO’s, the common worker, the prostitute, the pimp, the drug dealer, and whomever else we cross paths with. Let us love continually and let us lead the lost to you. If grace is an ocean then we are all sinking…

In your precious and holy name I pray, Amen.
