CHURCH PRAYER (August 2018)
Leader: Heavenly Father, You are God who shows no partiality. You accept those who fear You and do what is right. You desire men and women everywhere to repent and turn to You.
People: Grant us repentance that leads to life. Deliver us from every darkness that seeks to invade Your Church and our hearts. Let our prayers be heard, and our giving be remembered before You!
Leader: You anointed Jesus with the Spirit and power, to do good and heal all. You appointed Him as Judge of the living and the dead. Everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins through His name.
People: Demonstrate Your signs and wonders among us. For Jesus Christ heals! Anoint us as Your witnesses to testify to this nation. Raise us up to serve Your purposes in our generation!
Leader: You poured out Your Spirit on those who heard. And a great number appointed for eternal life believed and turned to the Lord. Your Word increased and multiplied no matter what Your enemies did.
People: Do it again, O Lord! Let Your hand be upon us as You send us to bring the Good News. Direct us by Your Spirit to those who are ready to hear. Do a glorious work in our days as You fill us with joy and the Holy Spirit!
All: In Jesus’ name, amen.
