At a time when many question the relevance of the Church, give us the presence to be witnesses in the world. Witnesses that strengthen the presence of Christ in our communities.
Help us to be the answer to those questions of relevance by what we do and what we are known for.
Make us a welcoming body of Christ here at xxxxx so when people think about xxxx Church they think about the real church, the people of God who worship here.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.
