Call to Prayer
Organize my days, I pray, by the working of your Spirit in my midst. Organize my thoughts, I pray, by the working of your Spirit in my mind. Organize my emotions, I pray, by the working of your Spirit in my inmost heart. Organize my desires, I pray, by the working of your Spirit in my will. Organize my relationships, I pray, by the working of your Spirit in my labor, home, and leisure. Illuminate this life, God, illuminate me.
from “Canyon Road: A Book of Prayer” by Kari Kristina Reeves
Praise the LORD!
Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever!
Who can utter the mighty deeds of the LORD,
or declare all his praise?
Blessed are they who observe justice,
who do righteousness at all times!
Remember me, O LORD, when you show favor to your people;
help me when you save them,
that I may look upon the prosperity of your chosen ones,
that I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation,
that I may glory with your inheritance.
Read Acts 6:1-7
Prayer of Response
God, we ask humbly that our church would increase in number, not for the sake of pride but for the sake of a changed city. Give us wisdom as we care for one another, that we would be good stewards of our gifts and resources. Your word is truth, and we long to order our lives according to your promises. Help us, today. In Christ’s name, amen.
