November Prayer

Lord, we know that You want to give everyone in Central Alberta the opportunity to have a personal relationship with You. Help us to be a part of sharing Your truth with our friends, family, co-workers and neighbours.

As we follow You, open our eyes to the needs around us so that we can compassionately impact the world in Your name. We ask that You show us where we fail to follow You, and we invite Your Holy Spirit to guide us and help us walk in Your way.

Lord, repair and restore us and take us deeper in our walk with You, so that we can find our joy in You and be equipped to do the work You have set before us.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”

Mark 1:17 (NIV)
