Prayer for the Local Church

Today, we give thanks for the local church.  Scripture compares the church to a body and tonight is attempt to bring that body together.  We strive for unity.  Not a bunch of churches getting together, but The Church getting together.  Many branches but one tree.  Many parts but one purpose.  We are thankful to God that he has given us this method of establishing His kingdom here on earth.  The local church saves the lost, feeds the hungry, clothes the naked, visits the imprisoned, heals the sick, rebukes the devourer.  Each November those that are involved in the San Marcos Ministers’ Association gather as sort of a heaven practice.  All gathered in one place, at one time, in one mind to worship and give thanks to our creator and Savior.

Heavenly Father, we thank you for providing this vehicle called the local church.  Where strangers become family and broken are mended.  Thank you for the spiritual community of San Marcos, TX.  Lord, we are grateful that you have placed us in this place at this time for this moment of your kingdom.  We pray that we will take the rightful responsibility as your church and not squander our resources and talents, but we will rise to the great calling you have placed on us. To be the Salt of San Marcos.  To be the light of the world. A city on a hill  that cannot be hidden.  May your light permeate from your church to the darkest parts of this community.  Endue us with power from your Holy Spirit to build your kingdom, we pray in Jesus’ Name, Amen!
