Glorious Creator and God,
Praise and honor is due You for Your providence and mercy; Your steadfast lovingkindness and your unswayable justice.
Today I pray for the folks speaking and attending Contending for the Faith, those whose books they are examining, their families, and all who seek to serve You.
I pray especially for John West, Daniel Coe, Sonya West, Gene Hill, Doug Post, Wayne Blake, Michael Hatcher, and Daniel Denham.
Help us all make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
As Your Son prayed, I also pray: “My prayer is not that you take [us] out of the world but that you protect [us] from the evil one. [We] are not of the world, even as [Jesus was] not of it. Sanctify [us] by the truth; your word is truth. As you sent [Him] into the world, [He has] sent [us] into the world. … May [we] be brought to complete unity to let the world know that You sent [Him] and have loved [us] even as you have loved [Him].”
And I pray in His name:
