On Sundays we pause to pray for our own missional living and ministry. Won't you join us?
Almighty God, grant that those who worship you this day may present their bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, and acceptable to you. By the power of your holy spirit make us strong to fulfill our ministry this day. In the name of Christ, Amen. -From A Guide to Prayer for Ministers and Other ServantsReflection:
Our spiritual life is his affair; because, whatever we may think to the contrary, it is really produced by his steady attraction, and our humble and self-forgetful response to it. It consists in being drawn, at his pace and in his way, to the place where he wants us to be; not the place we fancied for ourselves. -The Spiritual Life by Evelyn UnderhillClosing Prayer:
May the Lord make you strong to do the work of ministry. Amen. -From A Guide to Prayer for Ministers and Other Servants
