Prayer for the City
Heavenly Father, we thank you for this work you have called us to, Lord. We thank you that you have given us the ability and provided for us to be able to do the work you have called us to do. Lord, we thank you so much for our mayor and for the city council, whom you have given the authority to shape and mold our great community. We also thank you for the servants in our community, the firefighters, the police department; the many others who make our community a great place to be, a great place to live, Lord. I just pray over this meeting today. I pray over this meeting for your presence to be here and your peace to be felt. Lord, that we can remember that we are followers and children of you: then we are Americans, Lord, and then we are citizens of this great city. And Lord, we pray for that order; we pray for those priorities to be in place in our own lives. We thank you so much for the many people here tonight, Lord. And I thank you for all you have done for us and the many blessings you have given us, Lord. We praise you, in Jesus name, Amen.
