At a leadership conference last week I was given a prayer that we were encouraged to pray for 30 days. I have been praying it and it has helped me to think and see differently in a lot of ways. I encourage you to pray this prayer every morning for the next 30 days as well.
God, this is a new day. I freshly commit myself to the role you have invited me to play, as you are building your church in this world. I am awestruck again today that you include me in this life-giving, world-transforming endeavor. So today I joyfully offer you:
and my gratitude
I commit all of myself to the role you have assigned me in the building of your church so that It may thrive in this world. And I will “bring it” today. I will bring my best. You deserve it. Your church deserves it. It is the hope of the world.
