8th Day of Prayer

Welcome to our 8th day of prayer as the people of Faith Lutheran Church. Our prayer theme for today is “Fears About This Program, Future Growth, and Other Challenges.”

Our reading for today is from Philippians 4, verses 6-8:

Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Let’s pray together.

Offer a prayer thanking God for the great opportunities that present themselves to our congregation as we work with the Mission Investment Fund Capital Campaign Services. (PAUSE)

Thank God for the exciting times that lie before us. Thank God that we are committed to meeting these opportunities as we are led by God’s Spirit. (PAUSE)

Acknowledge before God that change can be a challenge even for those who are committed to it. (PAUSE)

Ask for the calming power of God’s presence, and for God’s guidance to lead us to that which is God’s will for us. (PAUSE)

Amen. May God bless you and keep you in God’s grace.

    Often times being a worry-wart I really appreciate Philippians 4: 6-8.
    “Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” Something to be said for ‘Let go, let God’.
