“Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?”
Job 38: 2
O God, Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer, you judge every nation by your measuring rod of righteousness. In your mercy, grant us the knowledge of where we fall short, the will to amend our ways and, and the readiness to swiftly pursue that which secures your blessing for us and our posterity. In the name of Christ, we pray. Amen.
-Rev Dr A Roy Medley, General Secretary Emeritus, American Baptist Churches in the USA
Thank you for participating in our weekly invitation to prayer. We call on you now to join us in “40 Days of Prayer to Transform: A Journey to Newness.” Beginning December 12 and moving daily through January 20, members of the National Council of Churches and all communion partners will join in praying for hope, unity, and healing. During this Advent/Christmas season and into the New Year we put our hope in the ability and desire of God, through Jesus Christ, to heal and transform hearts and minds. We look for the Holy Spirit to breathe God’s newness into individual lives, faith communities, the soul of our nation, indeed, the whole world.
