Heavenly Father, thank You that Your grace and peace has been poured out on me in such abundance and on all who trust in the Lord Jesus.

Lord Jesus I am so grateful to You for the church family You have given me and for the love and encouragement that I receive from each member.
I bless and thank You that we are all members of Your body and that we are all there to support each other in times of sorrow and joy as well as those seasons of sickness and health. How wonderful it is to know that we are all one in Christ and have that unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace and love.
We lift up the wider church family and pray that You would meet each one in their own particular time of need. We especially bring before You our brothers and sisters in Christ that have been rejected by their own family members due to their faith in the Lord Jesus and how grateful we are that the arms of love within the body of Christ stretch out to the four corners of the world.
Keep us all we pray in a bond of unity and may Christ be lifted up in the heart of each one – this we ask in Jesus name,
