Today is the National Day of Prayer: ""And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more" Phil 1:9 NIV
How can the church demonstrate the love of God to a sinful, loveless world? The answer: church members demonstrate God's love in the way they interact. Church members are to be known for their love and respect for others.
To accomplish this ministry of practical compassion requires that the church have dedicated leaders whose lives reflect God's love with growing purity. They know the language that speaks God's love to the world that needs to hear it. The church touches lives every day all around the world and in our nation. Stop today to pray for our nation, your community and your church. God will do mighty things when we pray!
O God, the challenges and needs of our world are great. Make us, Your church, the instruments of Your love for the world. In Jesus' name, amen.
