Merger Prayer Vigil - Day 35 Round 2
Week 5 Transforming Church and community
Jesus calls us to not only make new disciples, but in the process to transform the world.That starts with transforming our church and our community into a more loving, Christ-centered, grace-filled place.
35. Pray for an openness to try new things.
“For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.”
Time marches on. Communities change. The church must be involved and relevant.
• Pray that the church is attentive to the changes happening in the community.
• Pray that the church takes risks to reach unchurched people.
• Pray that the people in the community respond favorably to the many ways the church reaches out with God’s transforming grace and love.
