31 Days of Prayer
February 6, 2019
Prayer for Today:
Blessed are you, O God, creator of the universe and the giver of all good gifts to your children. You are great and are to be lifted high in praise. You are holy, high above us and above all creation.
Today, we thank you that you have not forgotten, abandoned, or rejected us, despite all that speaks against us. In your own dear son, you have given us nothing less than yourself and all that is yours. We praise you that we and all people are invited as guests to your table of mercy and grace.
In these days of uncertainty, we hold before you The United Methodist Church and all who are involved in making decisions for the future. We commit them into your faithful hands. Teach them and us to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with you.
Give us and them the wisdom and insight so that we may become instruments of your love and peace. Give us all a clear and courageous witness so that we may stand firm in our faith and not cower in the face of adversity.
We offer our prayers to you in the love of Jesus who taught us to pray saying, “Our Father, who art in heaven… Amen
A Few Reminders
Thank you for participating in this 31-day prayer journey. Our journey will include opportunities to read and reflect on the scriptures as we pray specifically for the special General Conference, for the leaders of our denomination, and for the delegates who have represented us. As we pray together, we will become more who God has created us to be.
You can find the delegates from the West Ohio Conference here. Let us pray for each of them every day. It will be through our prayers that they become more who God created them to be.
Thank you for taking this journey with us.
