A Prayer for the Church
From The Pastor in Prayer: A Collection of the Sunday Morning Prayers of C.H. Spurgeon:
Look at this time, we beseech Thee, upon us as a church and give us greater prosperity. Add to us daily. Knit and unite us together in love. Pardon church sins. Have mercy upon us that we do not do more for Thee. Accept what we are enabled to do. Qualify each one of us to be vessels fit for the Master’s use, then use each one of us according to the measure of our capacity. Wilt Thou be pleased to bless the various works carried on by the church; may they all prosper…Send prosperity, and not to us only, but to all workers for Jesus, to all missions in foreign lands, and missions in the heathendom at home. Bless all Thy churches far and near, especially the many churches speaking our own language across the Atlantic, as well as in this land. The Lord send plenteous prosperity to all the hosts of His Israel. May Thy kingdom come!
