We believe that God can use a simple prayer of surrender to change and empower us both individually and as a church. Together, our congregation is beginning the year by praying a short prayer for the next 30 days. We hope that you will find a quiet spot each day to spend a few moments with God and offer this prayer.

Our 2019 Prayer

God, You are good. You are kind and merciful and faithful and just. You love me with an unconditional love I can get from no one else.

Come quiet my heart from the distractions around me and draw me near to You. I am Yours. I yield my will to Your will in all things.

I ask for strength where I am weak. Courage where I am afraid. Healing where I am broken. Forgiveness where I have failed. Remind me that my worthiness is found in Christ and not in my performance.

Empower me today to keep my eyes on You, to live generously, to welcome the stranger, to invest in others and to serve you.
