The Church needs favor!
I’m writing a series of prayers for the Church, offering a prayer on a different topic each week. So far, I’ve prayed for awakening, transformational leaders, urgency, hope, health, compassion, action, unity, and power.
With God’s favor, anything is possible!
O God, we belong to you. You have called us and sent us to be witnesses of Jesus Christ in the world!
Thank you for sending your Holy Spirit to empower us. Now, we pray for your favor and blessing.
Too often, Lord, we depend on other things and also on ourselves. Help us rely on you and seek your favor above all else.
Give us favor with the people you call us to reach, the people who live in our communities, especially the people far away from you.
Give us favor also with one another, the people you call us to be in ministry with, especially the leaders and influencers in our churches. Help us work together and do whatever is necessary to advance your mission in the world.
With your favor, O God, we can do whatever you send us to do, for the honor and glory of Jesus Christ! Amen.
