Jesus Prayer Applied To Our Churches
Our Creator who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
God, you are the one who has called us into existence – our MCC Movement, each local MCC, and each of us as individuals.
Thy dominion come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
We long for Your fondest dreams to come to pass for our churches, for our movement, for each of us – Your dreams, not ours.
Give us this day our daily bread.
Every one of us is facing some immediate, pressing need. We look to You to supply exactly what we need right now. We trust You to supply exactly what we need right now.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Help us to let go of the grievances we have against one another with the same ridiculous grace we hope to receive from You.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
We are keenly aware that, if we’re not careful, we can end up doing harm, instead of good. Help us to do good!
For Thine is the dominion, and the power, and the glory forever.
Regardless what happens, we remind ourselves that Your power and glory will prevail.
