Prayer for Friday
Lord our God, we thank You that You have redeemed us and that we may feel united with Your chosen and holy ones, those in heaven and those on earth who are gathered around Jesus Christ, a people growing in number and strength from year to year. We thank You that we too belong within that group, and we ask You to keep our hearts aware of this unity so that we may be joyful, redeemed people who find ever greater deliverance, full of praise and thanks, full of certainty and joy to the glory of Your name. Grant this to us, for we are Your people, born out of Your love and power as Savior and united for the sake of Your kingdom. Guard Your gifts and Your powers within us. Continue Your redemption of the whole world until joy floods through our whole being and we can praise You for the life You have already given us here on earth. In Jesus’ name, we ask.
