Prayer for today:
Father God, we know you love your Church. Son of God, you died and rose again to make the Church your body. Holy Spirit, you founded the Church on Pentecost, and you remain to empower, guide, and unify us. We give you praise.
As the Church in the Western world enters into times of increasing hostility, we pray that you, God, would guide us to a state of complete spiritual readiness for whatever the world may throw at us. That means more than endurance, more than just making it through. It means being ready to share the good news, to shine the light of Christ through our joy, to share his love though our acts of sacrificial love.
And we pray that this Spiritual Project would serve the Church well, to help it grow in that readiness.
In Jesus’ name,
