DEAR LORD, THANK YOU for my church
And for the people who are part of it.
I’m grateful to be reminded each Sunday of
Who I want to be,
Who you want me to be, and
Who you want us to be together.
Continue to guide the pastor, other leaders, and each church member.
Keep us faithful to you and to the mission you have given us.
Help our lives better reflect your love, both as individuals and as a community.
I pray for courage and encouragement
For those who are starting new churches.
Let their lives show your love and caring
So that many people who need you will find you.
Help my living always be a credit to my church
And a sign of my faith in you. Amen./
– Mary Lou Redding
