Today we pray…

 

These I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations (Isaiah 56:7).

 

Dear Heavenly Father,

You have said that You love the world, that You are building Your Church, that You are calling all people to Yourself. We pray for the nations around the world, asking that the church You are building there will be strong and faithful. We pray for there to be justice and mercy in the governments and societies so issues of poverty and exploitation and needs for education, housing, and employment will be met. As the attendees return to their homes and areas of service, please empower them to do Your work with the resources You give them. May their hearts be full of courage and good cheer as they serve You in communities that are desperate for You. Thank you for their service. How beautiful are the feet of those who bring Good News!

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
