Prayer for Southside

It has been a while since I have written out a prayer.  My heart is heavy for Southside Baptist Church.  This is the prayer I have said this morning.  Most of these words have been taken from 2 Thessalonians. I pray you will make them your own as you pray for the body of believers you associate with.

          God You are good, abundant in mercy and full of grace and truth.  You are our God and we bow in humble adoration of You.  Father You are worthy and You have called us together as a body at Southside.  Father we love You and we ask for our faith and great love for You to increase.  Lord we ask we will bow in Your presence with hearts ready to listen and obey.  Father may our faith grow exceedingly in You.  May our love abound toward one another.  Lord may we be patience and faithful in all persecution and tribulations.  Oh God may we endure to be counted worthy of the kingdom of God. God count us worthy to live up to the calling of our salvation with lives marked by goodness and powerful works of faith.  God teach us to walk worthy, to allow You our God and Savior to be glorified in us, the light of all Your purpose.  God from the beginning You chose us for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth.  Father I ask we stand fast to the truth we have been taught.  Father may You comfort our hearts and strength us in every good work.  God I pray the word of the Lord would run swiftly and You would be glorified.  God deliver us from unreasonable and wicked men.  Lord God You are faithful.  God establish us and guard us from the evil one.  My Father and God I have confidence in You that we the people of Southside will do as you have commanded us.  God I ask You would direct our hearts into the love of God and the patience of Christ.  Oh Father may the people of Southside be diligent to work in quietness to provide for their families.  God may we not grow weary in doing good.  Father teach us to obey Your word, warning each other as brothers in Christ. God extend Your peace to our hearts and be with us as we meet and through out the week.  May we live to bring glory and honor to Your name.  We ask all these things in the name of our Savior and God Christ Jesus, for His glory alone. Amen
