40 Days Of Prayer: Thursday, January 14, 2016

Lord, we pray that we may keep your Word in our lives and in the life of our churches.  May the Word keep us focused on being in the world yet not of the world.  We pray for the commitment to truly be your disciples. Clear our minds and calendars to receive your grace and love.  Thank you, God, for all you have done, are doing and will do.  Remind us that it is not our place to judge and that we are to be keepers of peace.  We pray for our nation and our world – for the challenges of living in a broken world where there are yet people who do not know of your grace or of your son, Jesus.  God, bless us, and our churches as we walk with Christ.  Amen.
