Loving Lord, thank You that Jesus came to die for the sins of humanity, and those that trust in Him will not be condemned but have eternal life. Thank You, Lord, that all believers are part of Your body, that You bought us all 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. Purify all those that are Your children. Help each one to draw ever closer in these difficult days so that they may be presented to You a holy Church, a sanctified Body, without any stain or wrinkle or any other sort of blemish. May Your church be set apart for You, perfect and blameless in all things.
Draw every one of Your children closer to You in thought and word and deed, to Your praise and Your honour. In Jesus' name I pray,
