Gracious God,

We praise you for all you have provided for each of us, especially for our church family. You know what is needed.  Please use Your love to break through our doubts and fears. Help us discern Your purpose to fulfill Your will for our church and community.    Amen

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.                                                                   - Philippians 4:6,7 (NIV)
