In addition we look forward to your visit during which you can enjoy first hand our loving fellowship and Antioch worship experience for yourself.

“Prayer for the Journey” by Jason Lovelace

This is the confidence we have in approaching God; that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us (1 John 5:14)

Let us pray:

Loving God, God of hope and joy, we come this morning with joyful, thankful hearts

Thankful for this opportunity to praise and honor you,
because you are so worthy
because you have done and are doing great things
and we trust in the promise that the work you have begun in us will be completed

Father we are thankful, so thankful, that you have given us a living hope in our Lord Jesus
and the joy we share comes from knowing that we have been justified. It is our faith that gives us the confidence to petition before your throne of Grace.

Even when we don't understand your plan for us Father,
we are thankful that you have a plan
And we believe that, even when we don’t see it at the time, that you are causing all things to work for our good, according to your purpose

Sometimes things happen and it can be hard not to lose heart
So Father we thank you for strengthening us during the tough times
and for being with us as we go through them
Because through them we are able to draw nearer to you through our Lord Jesus
And see the power of your Grace more clearly in our lives

Heavenly Father, you've already done so much for us
And every day we are reminded of the depth of your love
That you would send your one and only son
Not to condemn us
But to redeem us
And by your Grace transform us to his image

But you told us to ask Father, so with all faith we are asking

We're asking for boldness, boldness to speak the truth of your Word and to act in accordance with it, even when it may not be the easy or popular thing to do, that you might be glorified

We are asking Father, for your guidance, for a greater understanding of your will for each of us, that we may better serve your kingdom, so your purpose for us might be fulfilled

And we are asking for more compassion. Especially in these times Father, help your children to lead with compassion rather than with judgment, so that by our light those who are lost might find their way to Christ

These things we ask in the mighty name of Jesus
And we are receiving them in faith believing
And we thank and praise you Father, for the victory given us

In Jesus' name Amen
