Church-Wide Prayer & Fasting

Thursday, December 17 Guiding Prayer: 

Heavenly Father, You have called us to go into the nations. You teach us to obey everything You have commanded. Father, You tell us most importantly that we are to love You with all our hearts, our souls, our minds and with all our strength. We pray we would bear much fruit by loving our neighbors as ourselves.
Lord, give me the courage, boldness, wisdom and knowledge to reach out to my five, my community and to be on mission, for You have equipped me for every good work through Your Scriptures. Lord, I believe Your Word id God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness. I hear Your words and put them into practice. 
My desire is to bring honor and glory to Your name. Thank You in advance for all that You will do in and through me. 
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all. I pray these things in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
