“And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work.”
2 Corinthians 9:8 NRSV
“God, thank you that you have given to us everything we need for peace, unity and healing in the person and work of Jesus. He is our prince of peace, the foundation of our love for one another and for all people, and he is medicine for hurting souls and bodies. Help us to live into the promises we have in him.”
-Rev. Dr. Karen Petersen Finch, Associate Professor of Theology, Assistant Director of the Whitworth Honors Program, Whitworth University
Thank you for participating in our weekly invitation to prayer. We call on you now to join us in “40 Days of Prayer to Transform: A Journey to Newness.” Beginning December 12 and moving daily through January 20, members of the National Council of Churches and all communion partners will join in praying for hope, unity, and healing. During this Advent/Christmas season and into the New Year we put our hope in the ability and desire of God, through Jesus Christ, to heal and transform hearts and minds. We look for the Holy Spirit to breathe God’s newness into individual lives, faith communities, the soul of our nation, indeed, the whole world.
