I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
- Psalms 9:1
Father, help us as Your people to learn to walk humbly with
You. Give us the gift of tears I pray, as a sign that You are softening our
hearts. Fill us with fresh passion for You and a hunger for holiness, that we
would truly become those who seek first Your kingdom and Your
righteousness. Reveal to us, I pray, the things that keep us from truly drawing
near to You (Psalm 119:2; Matthew 6:33).
As a community of faith, may we increasingly be those who bless with our
mouths, who seek and pursue peace with one another. May we love as brothers
and be compassionate and humble towards one another (1 Peter 3:8-12).
Father, Your Word says that You have not given us a spirit of fear or timidity,
but power, love and self-discipline. I ask in Jesus mighty name that fear be
crushed and put to death in the lives of my brothers and sisters at FCC.
Replace timidity with holy boldness I pray (2 Timothy 1:7).
