James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

Lord, we have gathered here to seek Your face because You are the source of everything. We stand in awe of You for our minds cannot comprehend Your Sovereignty.

Romans 9:16 So then [it is] not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy.

Father, we are grateful that You have shown us mercy and had compassion on us. We prostrate our hearts as You help us to walk this path, fulfill Your pleasure and do all that You want us to be in this life.

2 Corinthians 5:14-15 For the love of Christ compels us because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

May our lives, careers, businesses, marriages, children and finances serve and honor You Lord. Our prayer and cry, is that we shall represent You well wherever You have planted us. That our lives will speak for You and point men to You.

Acts 17:28 for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’

Father, as we seek Your face, continue to draw us to You so that nothing takes us away from Your truth. Be the centre of all that we engage in and free us from all the wrong encounters.

Lord, we have come to You because we are mortal men who are prone to error. Preserve us so that we may stay in our lane and keep our eyes on You; the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2).

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Strengthen us Lord, to do what You have entrusted to us, to serve You with reverence and with a grateful heart.

Though we are born-again, we acknowledge that we are mortal men and that’s why we humble ourselves before You so that You may help us.
