I love what your Son said in reference to Herod wanting to kill him, “Go tell that fox, ‘I will keep on driving out demons and healing people today and tomorrow, and on the third day I will reach my goal’…I must press on today and tomorrow and the next day…” Jesus has such tenacity and determination – character traits we need to develop. We are blessed to know that your will is always sure even in the midst of great challenge and difficulties.
Make us tenacious; make us determined; give us a focused eye on your will; give us the vigor to press on. For our lack is not your limit! You will win in every situation. Satan may overwhelm us, cause us fear, and even limit our resources, but all these are only opportunities for your glory to be even more clear. May we bring you glory and not shame at FRC. Mold us to be like your Son and help us to not give up.
Unveil our limited eyes of defeat and open them to see your power and your ability. Thank you that you would use us in your will to carry out your work. You don’t need us, but you want us – what a blessing! You are good; your love is everlasting; your power has no bounds. Overwhelm us with your presence and lift us up on high so we can full fill your will in every situation we face.
Move the hearts of each person in our church to chase after you. You are our person of devotion. All else falls into place when we make you foremost in our life. Unify us around YOU, then we will reach our goal!
In Jesus name,
