Prayer for My Church

Prayer for My Church

Father, in Jesus’ name, my church is a Christ-exalting congregation, generous and willing to share, knowing the grace of Christ. We fulfill the Great Commission in our local community by witnessing, serving, making disciples, baptizing, and teaching. As we do so, we know that Christ will be with us and cause us to multiply. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
