Bishop Beard and the IGRC Cabinet are inviting members of the church to join with them and commit to praying 1 minute each day asking God to “BREAKTHGOUGH” and reveal God’s will for new plans being made for the United Methodist Church. The Psalmist wrote “Unless the Lord builds a house, the work of the builders is wasted.” Let us join together and pray this prayer, or one of our own, each day in November: <!–split–>
Gracious and Merciful God, we come before You acknowledging that Your ways are higher than ours and Your wisdom is greater than ours. While we love and care deeply for our communities and congregations, Your Love of the people of and in IGRC is greater than ours. So we are calling out to You and asking for You to breakthrough to new and fresh ways. Reveal to us and our leaders Your will, Your guidance, Your direction. Bring Your wisdom as we seek to restructure in ways that will allow us to be more faithful and fruitful in making disciples of Jesus Christ that will lead to our world being transformed in God-glorifying ways. Thank you for working in and through us to accomplish your plans and purposes. Please speak for Your servants are listening…….Amen.
