The Universe in Your Backyard #2: A Prayer

September 15th, 2011 by Thalia Kehoe Rowden

This from Murray, who curated our service on Sunday.

On Sunday 11th September, while world events are on people’s minds, fittingly we prayed this prayer, based on what we read in Ephesians 1:15-23:

‘Father of West Baptist Church, thank you for sending your son to show us how to live.  Thank you, Jesus, that you are in control of what happens in our world, in our country, in our city, in our suburb, in our households, in our lives.  Jesus, we acknowledge that you are in control of the whole universe.  Lord, help us to grasp the significance of that and of what we are a part of.  Help us to grasp how much you love us individually and of the significance we can have in your eternal purposes as we love and serve one another.  Lord, open the eyes of our hearts as we study Ephesians over the coming weeks.  Build your kingdom here.  Build your kingdom now.  We pray in Jesus’ mighty name.’
