    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church


    Perspectives: CLT Prayer Initiative

    CLT Prayer Initiative: Week 6

    March 9, 2020 / By Rev. Steven Taylor

    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. Click here to read more about the prayer initiative.

    This week's prayer is provided by the Rev. Steven Taylor:

    Abba, in Jesus' Name, we give honor to You as we humbly approach You in prayer today. We simply pray, “Come, Holy Spirit, Come!” It's only in You, Lord, and in Your presence with us, that we can see clearly Your desires for our lives, for our churches, and for the United Methodist Church. As disciples that strive to follow Jesus closer and closer, we wait and listen, talk and pray, in bold anticipation that, as we abide in Your presence, the future will be secure for us all. Protect and inspire our leaders. Encourage and steady your people. Call and equip us all for the days and years ahead. We have nothing and are nothing apart from You. With you, we have nothing to fear and everything to gain. Amen.
