I ask, Lord, that You give to us ‘godly sorrow’ that brings
repentance and leaves no regret. May we no longer make excuses for our sin
(‘I was brought-up this way…’, ‘My father was this way…’, ‘I’ve always been an
angry person…’) Give us the gift of brokenness, humility and tears before You.
Increase our hunger for holiness. (2 Corinthians 7:10)
O God, give us a hunger for holiness! Open our eyes to see the ways that the
philosophies and standards of the world have pushed out the standard of Your
Word in our lives! (Colossians 2:8)
Father, may those who lead us have Your wisdom in all things. Give our
Pastors, Elders, and Deacons wisdom, strength, and unity as they lead us.
