Dear God, glory to your name!
We acknowledge you as Creator, Redeemer, and sustainer of life.
In your mercy hear the prayers of your people.
Forgive our sins and grant us the strength and wisdom to resist and overcome concerted and sustained attacks.
Heal our wounds and restore us to wholeness.
Open our hearts to share our material wealth and talents.
Remind us that time is a gift; help us wisely use it to your glory.
Create in each of us a clean heart and renewed spirit that seeks only to glorify you.
Restore to us the joy of your salvation.
To that end, send a spiritual revival.
Help us live in such a way that others come to believe: Jesus is the only reason for the Christmas Season.
In His name we pray, amen!
