Serving our community with prayer and hard work

Dear Lord,

We are serving our community this week.
You are reminding us of your great love and mercy
so that we are not distracted by the world we want to see
or ignorant of the world we don't want to see.
May the condition of the buildings we fix,
the lawns we weed,
the materials we stock,
the lives we uplift--
may it all glorify your name and reflect your love for the whole world.
Let us be your hands and feet to our neighbors.
Nothing is too hard,
too awkward,
too humbling,
too uncomfortable to do
that Jesus hasn't already experienced for me.
Thank you for your love and grace toward me
and your overflowing blessings.
Help me reach out to others every day,
not just on a missions week.

In Jesus' precious name,
Amen.


We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your ]faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. (Romans 12:6-8)
