Grace 50/50 Prayer

attributed to Jay George

Faithful and gracious God, we know that you are not slow to fulfill your promises. We humbly come before you in agreement asking you to bring us 50 new families in 50 weeks. Enable us, by the power of your Spirit, to invite and welcome new people into our community. Prepare our hearts, that we would receive your blessings with joy, giving you honor and glory and praise. Amen.

Prayer for Mission

from Morning Prayer Rite II - BCP, p 100

O God, you have made of one blood all the peoples of the

earth, and sent your blessed Son to preach peace to those

who are far off and to those who are near: Grant that people

everywhere may seek after you and find you; bring the

nations into your fold; pour out your Spirit upon all flesh;

and hasten the coming of your kingdom; through Jesus

Christ our Lord. Amen.

Lord Jesus Christ, you stretched out your arms of love on

the hard wood of the cross that everyone might come within

who do not know you to the knowledge and love of you; for

the honor of your Name. Amen.

Gracious Father, we pray for thy holy Catholic Church. Fill it

with all truth, in all truth with all peace. Where it is corrupt,

of Jesus Christ thy Son our Savior. Amen.

evermore; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Prayer for Grace Church

attributed to Jamie George

That Grace Church would be emblazoned by your Holy Spirit, moving hearts with revelation, conviction, and unspeakable joy, that you would stretch out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus (Acts 4:30) enabling your servants to speak your word with great boldness (Acts 4:29) that your glory would be evident, leaving Grace Church standing in awe, praising you, our awesome God, who has done great and awesome works that every soul at Grace Church will see (Deut 10:21) all for YOUR glory that YOUR kingdom will come here on earth as it is in Heaven. Amen
