A Prayer for GA
O Lord our God,
As our church gathers from places near and far, bring them together in the name of Christ our Lord. Deliver us from our arrogance and pettiness, and put your right Spirit within us all. May not our will but yours be done.
Touch all gathered by your holy presence that they may honor you in the grace and gift of this time and work of the church.
May commissioners find Sabbath time as they do the worshipful work of GA.
Bless them richly, O God, and grant them vision, wisdom, a spirit of cooperation, and hearts aflame in Christ's love that will build-up and heal rather than tear-down and divide. Unite us in Jesus Christ our Lord.
Wrap our GA in your holy love as we lift our church up to you, dear God. Your peace be ever with us and may what is done find favor with and be pleasing to you. Amen.
