With your people, Father in heaven, we are at home. We await only our reunion with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Let your love prevail among us. May forgiveness be ever in our hearts and healing on our tongues.
Remind us that our time together is for us to seek someone to encourage and lift up, and that we are not present as consumers.
Make us see that our problems are opportunities to deeper fellowship.
Let us understand that as your people we are placed here with a single task, that of transforming lives and bringing others to eternal life.
Make it so this day. Amen.
