My prayer for the church

Kinda channeling Ms. Clara from The War Room here

Father God,

I pray that you will raise up a church that will unceasingly call upon your name and only your name.

I pray you will raise up a church that loves you, and trusts you, and constantly seeks your will.

Raise us up, Lord!

Raise us up!

Lord, I pray you raise up a church that is overflowing with bold believers who are not ashamed of the full gospel!

That you raise up a church that rejects what itching ears want to hear and hungers for your truth.

That you raise up an army of believers, Lord, that hate to be lukewarm and hate to stand on the sidelines watching society decay around them.

Raise us up, Lord!

Raise us up!

I pray for unity among a church that puts you above petty denominational differences and loves you more than anything or anyone else.

I pray that you open the eyes of the church so that it can see that your truth is greater than the supposed truth that comes from fallen and dying world.

Raise us up, Lord!

Raise us up!

I pray for your hand of protection and guidance for those willing to surrender their lives to you.

I pray you will raise up a church, Lord, that will take light into this world; that will not compromise when under pressure; that will not cower or back down when the spiritual battles heat up.

Raise us up, Lord!

Raise us up!

Raise up a church, Lord, that is not ashamed to proclaim that healing, freedom, peace, and salvation can be found in nothing other than Jesus Christ!

Raise up church full of warriors, Lord, who will never tire or grow weary of fighting.

A church who will love you and worship you with their whole hearts, whole souls, whole strength, and whole minds, Lord!

Lord, I pray you call every member of the church body to battle.

Raise us up off the sidelines.

Raise us up out of our comfort zones.

Raise us up to walk mightily in your power and not meekly in our fear.

Raise us up out of our grief.

Raise us up out of our doubt.

Raise us up out of our insecurity.

Raise us up out of our shyness.

Raise us up out of our shame.

Raise us up out of our weakness.

Raise us up, Lord and wash a resurrection power over us, so that we may boldly and without fear of persecution proclaim your truth in this goddess land.
