My prayer for OBC from Sunday's message

God, grant to us your people

A hunger and thirst after your righteousness
A desire to do all for your glory
An urgency to love you and our neighbor
A burden to walk by your Spirit
A passion to imitate you in all your goodness
An ability to make the best use of our time
A consistent walk in light of the gospel
A heart that is set on your kingdom and your will

And may we see that you are intent on answering all of these things in the ordinary events of our lives.

We ask in faith, and hope with confidence that because of Jesus you will work out your will in our lives.
