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 the Name, the Power and the Glory of the One, True, Living God, through Whom we are created and Who abides in us, as we abide in Him. Your Name Father, is revered unendingly, 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, 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 dwell, but you, Christ, dwell in us, keeping your peace alive in our hearts, and your calm when we are under duress. We can count on your steadfast care in times of trouble and when we 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 the Lamb of God Who offered his life for the sake of sinners. 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. Amen
