This Week's Congregational Prayer:
(These weekly prayers are given for unity and prayer guidance. Unity in the hope that everyone will offer this prayer daily throughout the week. Prayer guidance in the intent to assist everyone in knowing how and what to pray.) Father, the presence of pain in this world still bothers me. I don’t want you to wait any longer. I want you to act now, and make things right today. However, I know you are waiting to bring judgment so that more people might be saved. Grant that I might be patient waiting for the redemption of all things, and that I might be used by you in your mission of reaching and saving the lost. And yet, Lord, I still pray: speed the day of your coming. I long to see you face to face, and I long to live in the world perfectly ruled by your peace and love. So come, Lord Jesus; come. Amen.
