I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name – the name you gave me – so that they may be one as we are one. John 17:11
Heavenly Father, we acclaim your Name, Power and Glory, singing your praises and rendering unending reverence to you, through all the earth. Our Lord Jesus, before he left the earth, through his providential protection, surrendered all his disciples to your care Father, giving an accountability of the conclusion of his ministry, and entrusting its expansion and foundation to his followers. By this act, he gave us the Power of your Holy Spirit to dwell within us, in Jesus’ Name.
Thank you, Lord Jesus for the gift of the Holy Spirit in our lives, through Whom we stay connected with the Father as we no longer live, but you, Christ, live in us, keeping your peace alive in our hearts, and your calm when we are under duress and face hostility in the world. We have been handed a strategic mission with a singular purpose, to evangelize and share the good news of the Gospel of Truth, of the free grace of God to believers by their faith and the gift of Salvation already obtained for all who believe in your Holy Name.
Assist us Father, to keep focused on our mission of gaining souls by living in Christ and invoking all, in his Holy Name, accomplishing the establishment of his Church and becoming one Community in Christ, with Christ as the Head. Just as he was empowered by the Name you gave him, empower your children in Christ to remain as one and include more to the fold, by spreading your Holy Gospel, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
