A Prayer for Disciples in Mission

Loving God, you calles us each by name and gave your only Son to redeem us.

In your faithfulness, you sent the Holy Spirit to complete the mission of Jesus among us.

Open our hearts to Jesus.  Give us the courage to speak his name

to those who are close to us and the generosity to share his love 

with those are far away.

We pray that every person throughout the world 

be invited to know and love Jesus as Savior and Redeemer.

May they come to know his all-surpassing love.

May that love trannsform every element of our society.

 

We ask this through Christ, Our Lord.

Amen

 

"Fear not, for I am with you, be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand." Isaiah 41:10

When the Lord feels distant, or falls silent, I lean into James 4:8

In those times my family or I am suffering, I rush to Revelation 21:4

In times where I'm overwhlemed with gratitude and God's goodness, I trun to Psmal 95:2 and 1 Thessalonians 3:9

In times of confusion, I lean on Proverbs 3:5-6

When the future looks bleak, I pray Romans 8:28 and Jeremiah 29:11-12 until I trust in these words again.
