Heavenly Father, help us to be still in your presence and let your love surround us as we come to you in sincere prayer this morning.

 

Father of all keep our church steadfast in courage and in hope of the kingdom………. Increase our faith so that we may follow the example of those who have faithfully served you through all ages.

Look with pity on our world where many are anxious for the future and live in anxiety and fear …………….. grant to our generation the saving faith that has sustained your people in the past.

As disciples of Christ let us follow and not be afraid, knowing that you will care for us if we follow in his footsteps.

Our Faith is the assurance of things hoped for and the conviction of things unseen. We know that God has prepared a path for each of us. Let us tread forward in faith together knowing that God is with us.
