FaithWorks Sunday is 20 November

The Reign of Christ



A Prayer for

FaithWorks Sunday

 

Let us celebrate the Reign of Christ today in remembrance that Divinity arose among us in Jesus, lives within us, and sees us daily in the lives of those who call out for assistance.

 

We pray for all those who work within the FaithWorks family of support. We pray that our gratitude for their work may enrich their lives and sustain their energies for the great work that they are called to do. 

 

We pray for all those whom they assist that their lives may be renewed for full participation in the human family. 

 

We pray for the success of the FaithWorks fundraising campaign that we, too, may be given a chance to be those hands that do the work of saving lives and offering hope for so many. Help us to be as generous as possible, especially in this time when we are made aware of what it is to be alone, in need, and fearful of the future.

 

May the eyes of our hearts be always open to the full humanity of all.

 

Heavenly Father, we pray this in the name of Jesus Christ who is alive with You and the Holy Spirit, today and forever.

 

Amen
