Prayer Focus

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Hebrews 12:1

O God you have set before us a great hope
that your kingdom will come on earth,
and have taught us to pray for its coming:
make us ready to thank you for the signs of its dawning,
and to pray and work for the perfect day
when your will shall be done on earth as it is in heaven.
In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen

Hymn 742 Verse 1

Rejoice in God’s saints, today and all days!
A world without saints forgets how to praise.
Their faith in acquiring the habit of prayer,
their depth in adoring, Lord, help us to share.
