A Prayer

Lord, I pray for your Kingdom to come. I pray for a revolution of sacrificial love. I pray for more to come to you, and I pray for those who have already come to surrender themselves to your transforming power.

I pray for vision, God-confidence and more faith in the body of Christ. Faith for the impossible.

I pray for expressions of yourself and of your Body to come from hidden corners around the world - unexpected places.

I pray for lives committed to you. I pray for more wake-ups. I pray for more workers. I pray for more prayers, goers, givers, senders and receivers. I pray for more marathon runners.

I pray for more prayer, more 'walking in the light', more transparency, more vulnerability, more selflessness, more repentance, more rightly-motivated confession, more action for the poor and oppressed, more revival of every kind.

I pray for less of us, less of self, less bitterness, less pettiness, less immaturity, less bias, less anger, less hatred, less revenge, less impatience, less life-ravaging sin.

I pray, again, for a revolution of love. I pray for a truth-filled renewal of what love means.

Heavenly Father, your Kingdom come. In Jesus' name. Amen.
