CHURCH PRAYER (February 2019)
Blessed are You, God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! You gave us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. You reared and brought us up as Your children. We owe our lives to You!
Forgive us when by our sins, we rebel and forsake You. We acknowledge the sickness in our hearts and souls. In Your great mercy, You have not left us to ourselves. Turn Your ears and eyes to us, O Lord!
Though our sins are as scarlet, wash us white as snow. Remove the idols in our midst, and restore us as Church of righteousness. That we may cease to do evil and learn to do good. And You be exalted above all else!
Through us, plead the cause of the needy. Let Your Word come from Your presence among us, to bring hope to the nations who will come to You. Let us be Your faithful and fruitful people, ready for the coming harvest!
Through Jesus Christ our blessed hope, amen.
