Our Lord Jesus,
You came to earth. You descended to us. You came down to us. You spoke to us. You taught us. You cared for us. You taught us how to do those very things to and with others. You came here and when You left, You left You in us.
And though You are not physically seen, Your body remains. Who You want us to be, we can be. In You we can be more than we are. Because of You each of us becomes complete, as we then are complete, we complete one body when we connect in You!
Praise You Lord! Thank You for each gift You left in each of us. When I hurt emotionally, someone is available with a gift to heal such a pain. When I am lonely, someone is available with such a gift of companionship. Thank You Lord! Thank You!
“Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ. Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth. Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church. He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.” Ephesians 4:11-16 NLT
Forever You will be glorified! Forever You are lifted high! We as the body, You as the head! You are above us, we are connected to Your will!
You gave up Your body so that we could become Your body! Death? Where is your sting? Our resurrected King has rendered you defeated!
Forever You will be glorified! Forever You will be lifted high! Forever You are Risen! You are alive!
We sing hallelujah!
Today we pray with, and for the people of Wyoming through Uinta County. We pray for a connection through the I Heart Wyoming initiative. We pray for the at least 8,303 people in this county who have yet to be rooted in new growth through a gospel church. May our Lord expand, elevate and reinforce the credibility of the local church in this county.
The time to be connected as one has come, in Jesus name we pray, amen.
