A Prayer

Posted in Uncategorized on 11.03.17 by Merlyn

At a recent council meeting, one council member offered a prayer that struck me as honest, mature an healthy as each member takes a turn leading us in a devotion and prayer. I thought it worth sharing:

Dear God, thank you for allowing us to come together in your name.  We give thanks that we meet in Christian love. Thank you for the willingness to serve of those gathered here. Please help us to know that you will give us the resources and gifts (whatever they might be) to do that which you wish us to do. Help us to know that personal preferences are OK, but not to stumble over them. Please give us wisdom and good judgment to lead this congregation as you wish us to do. We ask you to fill us with your grace and tip us so it pours into the lives of others. In the name of Christ, Amen!
