Lord God, Creator of all good things, we come before you today, first to give you thanks for all things bestowed upon us that You have given. We thank you for your grace, love, mercy, and protection. You alone are Almighty God, Lord of lords, King of kings. We place before you the ministry for the women of our church. May you guide and protect those who have volunteered to develop, strengthen, and minister the amazing, beautiful women you have placed in our church family. May those within the ministry holdfast to Colossians 2:6-7, “And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow Him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built in Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” Help them to continually “Overflow” with thankfulness as they strive to reach women within our church and beyond by being the hands and feet of Christ.
Secondly, we pray, as a family of women in Christ, that you would bless, strengthen, and guide us in and through our daily life — our loved ones, our obligations, our struggles, and ourselves. May we be filled with compassion, grace, and gentleness for one another showing the love of Your Son, as we read in Ephesians 5:1-2 “Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and sacrifice to God...”. Help us minister to each other as we walk humbly, yet boldly, in Christ pursing righteousness, faith, love, and peace. Praying all these things in the name of Jesus, Amen!
