Church-Wide Prayer And Fasting

Father, thank You for being my Good Shepherd. In You, there is nothing I lack. You meet all of my needs according to Your glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Thank You for giving me strength, considering me faithful, and appointing me to Your service. Thank You that You are at work in me, giving me both the desire to obey and the power to do what pleases You. God, I know that my spirit is willing, yet my flesh is so weak. Lead me in the way everlasting. Show me the way I should go, for to You I lift up my soul, my schedule, and my storehouses. Help me to put on the Lord Jesus Christ by serving joyfully and sacrificially, sharing boldly and faithfully, and giving cheerfully and generously. Make the rough places smooth before me as I seek how You would lead me to join in Your work of bringing people of this community and around the world to Yourself. Thank You that You are the Lamp unto my feet. Give me the courage to follow You in confident obedience, no matter the cost. You are worth it. I ask all these things in and for Jesus' name, amen.
