In the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Today we celebrate World Day of Prayer. Today all Christians pause and prayer together seeking ways to make Christ present in our world today.
Loving God, bless our leaders in all our churches. Grace them with wisdom to listen to your faithful and be consistent in working together to build a Church for the good of all people.
All of us are asked to help Jesus build his Church.
We build our Church with bricks of faith,
We hold the bricks together with love,
We decorate its walls with joy,
Listen to these words of wisdom:
Remember God's Promise,
Faith will see you through
though you may not know just how.
Peace will fill your heart
although you may not feel it now.
Joy is on its way
for God has promised it to you
In those precious words...
"Behold, my child,
I will make all things new."
God of the Journey walk with us during Lent. Help us to persevere in staying with you on the journey through Lent to Easter.
Together let us build God's church in the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
