That Christ Would Guide Our Ministry

Loving Lord, we thank You that you have seen fit to place us in this little corner of Your vast world to be ministers unto You and to those whom You choose to place in our path. May we be faithful servants as we share the good news of the glorious gospel of Christ, and witness to the amazing grace whereby we have all been saved.

Thank You, for the seeds of the gospel of grace that have been quietly growing down through the centuries of time. Thank You, that we have been brought into that great family of God and have become a part of the growing body of Christ, separated into the gospel, by faith in Him.

Thank You, for the good work of grace that You have begun in our lives and all those with whom we are called to minister. May we be kept humble before You and prevent us from an attitude of self-inflated importance but rather let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith and ministry.

Lord, we pray that the Lord Jesus may be exulted in all we do, and may we submit to the leading of the Holy Spirit in all we undertake. Open ministry doors, as You see fit, so that we may shed abroad more of Your saving and sanctifying grace to those in need. May we continue to grow in grace and wisdom and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, and may all we say and do point others to Jesus, so that His name is glorified in all we say and do.

We ask this in the name of Jesus,
