31 Days of Prayer
February 17, 2019
Read Matthew 5:43-48
Today, let us again focus particularly upon the delegates who will represent us at the General Conference. Our prayer is not focused upon whether we agree or disagree, but Jesus and the purpose of our denomination.
Prayer for Today:
O God, thank you for providing what we need to face today and to step into the future unafraid. Give us eyes to see the new thing you are doing in the midst of the United Methodist Church. Knowing how you have worked in our past and the heritage of the Wesleyan heritage, we trust you for today and for tomorrow. Thank you for all you have done in and through those who have gone before us and for all you have done to help make us who we are. Today, we thank you for all our colleagues who will be representing us at the General Conference. We hold each of them before you, Amy, Chris, Roger, Mike, Karen, Dee, Curnell, Doug, Wade, Greg, Caleb, George, Phil, Kathy, Joy, Bill, Chris, Harris, Lyndsey, and Marilyn before. Fill each of them with your grace, peace, and trust so that they have clear discernment of your presence. Use them to make a difference in the life of the United Methodist Church during the special General Conference. We place them into your hands in the name of Jesus. 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.
