Lord, You put us above all things. Above all of the other infinite possibilities worthy of the Living God… You chose to take on all of our mistakes so that we could be free from any burden that would keep us from You. Love is defined in the person that is Jesus Christ. The One who the world rejected has brought the world it’s salvation. Lord, build Your kingdom here in this city and in our hearts with You as our foundation. Shield us from temptation, doubt or anything that would keep us away from You. Help us to stop closing our eyes to the needs of others. Teach us to love as You love us and strengthen us to forgive others as You have forgiven us. It all starts with You, Jesus, so lead the way through and beyond the brokenness of this world towards Your hope and Your grace. Wash away our sins and make us new. Hope built on the world will crumble as the world crumbles into dust but hope built on faith in Christ Jesus is unyielding and will endure beyond the limitations of time. That’s the cornerstone of our faith built on nothing else but our belief in the One who has and will always believe in us.
