A Prayer for our congregation

Dear God

We pray for our congregation.

May worship be truthful, passionate

and honouring to you.

Whether in ancient hymns or new songs,

may we unite in praise

and offer our whole lives

as worship to you.

In our life together may we encourage

where there is struggle,

celebrate where there is joy,

grow together in our understanding of

the Good News,

be unafraid to challenge,

honest enough to confess our mistakes

and may we remain hopeful

as we dream dreams.

In our mission

make us bold and adventurous.

In our weakness

may we know your strength.

May we have the great joy

of seeing others come to faith in you.

May we be resilient

in our pursuit of justice

and have the humility to share

in the work with others.

(from Together We Pray booklet, November 2018)
