Prayer for Mimico Baptist Church
To the God who is able to do immeasurably more than all I ask or imagine, according to his power that is within me I invite you to have your way. To a powerful loving God I ask great things. With Jesus, God with us, who promised never to leave us or forsake us we are free to dream large. Lord as we look to the growing opportunities and possibilities of ministry with our communities give us your eyes of faith. Help us to dream your dreams for our lives, our church our community and our world. Grow in us a large faith that will embolden us to make these dreams come true.
- You have strategically placed us, your church in this community to be salt and light. May the peoples of our communities see and know that you are with us that we may seek you together. As participants in your movement of grace may we be known by love.
- Psalm 63:1 O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you in a dry and weary land where there is no water. Lord, make us thirsty for you and put this thirst for you into the people of our communities. May we drink often at your well and invite others to join us.
- Grant us courage to live simply and generously, faithful to the example of Christ that we might contribute more to the needs of others.
- Grant us courage to say yes to what is beyond us but not beyond you when we know it is what you want. Your will be done.
To God be glory in the church and Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen
