Jesus, Your body, the Church, needs Your guidance. We long to see our churches full of those who worship You in Spirit and in Truth. We need Your wisdom and strength to fight against many struggles from within and without. We know You alone are the Cornerstone. We seek to build your church and develop disciples who grow to maturity. Give us clarity and vision as we seek to serve the church worldwide. Give us servant’s hearts and winsome words so we can come along beside leaders from all around the world to help them continue to build the body of Christ. Amen
Restoring Your Heart
Lord, You know our hurts and pain that many do not know or understand. You are able to heal our hearts and bring us to a place of wholeness. We ask You to give both our staff, and the many leaders of Restoring Your Heart groups, the sensitivity and insight to help guide people to You. Provide the grace to each person and group member to see themselves more clearly and Your love and grace more fully. Help all our groups to be a safe place for all who join the process of restoration. May Your Spirit be at work in and through this ministry. Amen
King of the World, we see Your Kingdom growing all over the world. You are bringing people from all tongues, tribes and nations to yourself and building them into Christlikeness. Keep these growing churches, partners and ministries in your care, providing them with the energy to continue to fulfill Your call to make disciples of all nations. Use WDA staff who provide training and support, materials and insight, encouragement and help. We are overwhelmed by the scope of our calling and yet amazed at Your powerful hand. We give You all the praise and glory! Amen
Father, we claim Your promises for the Next Generation of believers who are coming to faith and growing in grace among our college and university campuses. We pray for the University of Georgia, Depauw, and Purdue and also the many other places where students are in school. We ask You to give students mature men and women who will disciple them and show them the truth of your gospel. We ask that Your truth will be sown in their lives as they look to the scriptures, learn to worship and gather in community. Help them to learn to love You and love one another. Give them a vision to continue to bring the gospel to those around them. In Christ’s name we pray. Amen
Dear Jesus, give our headquarters team wisdom and strength for the sometimes mundane yet essential tasks that support our staff and ministries around the world. Give us creativity and insight as we listen and learn from one another to better serve Your Kingdom purpose in building disciples around the world.
