“Loving God,
So many prayers have been offered for wisdom and discernment and awareness of Your guidance. All of those things are truly important . But today God I ask for FUN. Please reward the commissioners and volunteers with fun through fellowship. Please give opportunity and blessing to those gatherings of friends – fellow body parts of Christ. Your church isn’t about business it is about people working together with joy and comradery. So release an extra dose of joy into the hearts of all those who gather. Do not let Your yoke become a burden to them. Give them light hearts that are quick to smile and to laugh easily.

May the good times roll!!

In the name of the creator of our smiles and the joy of our hearts, Jesus the laughing saviour!
Amen”
