Father…..There is great conflict within the United Methodist Church denomination. Much of this has to do with the authority of the Holy Scripture. As Christ Church enters this period of discernment, we pray for your intervention in this process. We want more than anything to be a church that follows Jesus and seeks your will. You have blessed this congregation since its inception in so many ways. You have sent many servants at just the right time, you have given us many prayer warriors, and you have inspired our clergy to preach sermons based on your Holy Scriptures. Through these blessings, we have seen amazing growth and touched thousands of lives. We just pray that you will guide us through this process and give us the wisdom to make decisions that will allow us to continue our mission of making disciples who make disciples. We pray this in Jesus name….
Amen! “Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.”
Psalm 33:20-22 ESV
