Our Father in heaven, hallowed is your name and holy is your nature. You are infinitely good. You cannot sin nor be tempted to sin. You hate sin with a pure and perfect hatred. You have an eternal perspective: You see the end as well as the beginning. I am certain Father that you who began the good work within us, will continue this work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. You are working in us, giving us the desire and the power to do what pleases Christ our LORD. I pray on my behalf and my brothers in the ministry, that utterance be given to us in the preaching of the word as we make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel. Help us to faithfully exalt Jesus who said, “If I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself.” I pray for eyes to be opened and minds to be enlightened so that those who hear might come to know the hope of heaven and the assurance of salvation. May we be filled with the knowledge of Your will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding. May we be counted worthy of our calling; may we fully execute our task. Help us to courageously stand for the truth. Now all glory to You Father, for your are able, through Your mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. I pray that Your glorious, unlimited resources will empower us with inner strength through his Spirit; that Christ will make His home in our hearts as we trust in Him. May our roots grow down deep into your love and keep us strong. May we have the power to understand, as all Your children should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep is the love of Christ. Deepen our love for Him who first loved us and may we see others as Christ sees them. May we be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from Your Spirit.
