Loving Lord thank You that Jesus came to die for the sins of humanity and that those that trust in You will not be condemned but have eternal life. Thank You Lord that we are all part of Your body and that You bought us with a price – and that our citizenship is in heaven, with You for evermore.
Lord I bring every member of Your Body to You in prayer and, Lord I pray that as the day gets increasingly more evil that You will guard and guide all those that have been purchased with the precious blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Sanctify Your body Lord - sanctify Your Church I pray with the washing of the cleansing water that comes from Your Word and purify all those that are Your children. Help each one to draw ever closer in these difficult days so that she may be presented to You a holy Church, a sanctified Body - without any stain or wrinkle or any other sort of blemish, but that she may be set apart unto God – perfect and blameless in all things.
That He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. Draw every one of Your children closer to You in thought and word and deed so that we are recognised by the world as a peculiar people – to Your praise and Your honour in Jesus name I pray,
