“Supporting, inspring and connecting Christ-centred leaders and congregations within the United Church of Canada”

Today’s prayer for General Council comes from Melodee Lovering (DLM). To view the archive of all prayers being offered in the lead up to GC43 click here.

“Lord God, we are grateful for the United Church of Canada which has been our home and our comfort over many years. We pray that those who are gathered at GC43 will have gratitude in their hearts and grace to offer others as they deliberate, as they listen, and as they hear the call of the Holy Spirit, like horns sounding over the next hill.

Refresh them as they fight fatigue so that they may be sharp and discerning. May they consider more than just their own interests when they individually form a decision. Make brave those who are afraid to speak up and make patient the others. In the strong Name of Jesus. Amen.”
