Weekly Prayer Focus—Rest for Those Who Serve
This advent season has been such a special time for our church family. Even before Advent, many special activities and events helped us to prepare for the celebration of the birth of our Lord, beginning with the Alternative Christmas Market. Our pastors, the office staff, and the many volunteers have worked hard to make these activities and events happen. Rest is important to our spiritual walk with the Lord, so let us take this time to keep them in our minds and hearts.
Let us pray for…
- relaxation in mind, spirit and body over the next few weeks for these dedicated workers;
- renewal of energy to perform the tasks that make our church community special;
- and new ideas and inspirations to start the new year with strength and focus.
Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. 2 Corinthians 13:11
He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit. Titus 3:5
