CLT Prayer Initiative: Week 3
February 17, 2020 / By Drew Griffin
In this season, there are momentous preparations being made for our United Methodist community to part, possibly to multiply in new ways. How we do that matters. In the weeks leading up to General Conference, members of your Conference Leadership Team will be sharing prayers designed to be used however the Spirit calls you to use them.

This week's prayer is provided by Drew Griffin:
Gracious and loving God we seek your shalom during these tides of change. The waters we sail are new and uncharted. By the light of the Holy Spirit please help us to navigate so that we might reach new people in new places with Jesus’ message of unconditional love. There will be rough seas and unknown obstacles, so we acknowledge our weakness and long for Your strength O Lord. As we work together for the glory of heaven here on earth help us to braid a strong rope with our relationships, with everyone we meet, so that we all can grow deeper in our relationship with Christ by supporting each other. Help us to remember the words of the prophet Jeremiah “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” We pray these things in the name of our risen Savior Jesus the Christ, Amen.
