State Motto – “With God, All Things Are Possible”

O Father,
Indeed all things are possible with You. We thank You for this bold motto and pray that it will take root and bear fruit in the hearts of Ohioans. Amen.

Luke 11:1-4 and Prayer Table Report

July 25, 2010

Now it came to pass, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, that one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.” (Luke 11:1)
      Jesus, please teach us as a diocese how to pray — teach us how to come together in prayer.

So he said to them, “When you pray, say: Our Father in heaven,” (Luke 11:2a)
      Father, thank you for giving us a spirit of adoption and making us your children.

“Hallowed be your name.” (Luke 11:2b)
      Father, we have unclean lips and we dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips (See Isaiah 6:5). Please help us keep your name holy.

“Your kingdom come. your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.” (Luke 11:2c)
      Father, we ask for your will and purposes to be accomplished in our lives and in the life of this diocese.

“Give us day by day our daily bread.” (Luke 11:3)
      Father, we don’t know what to do, but our eys are upon you (See 2 Chronicles 20:12); please help us receive each day the bread you have for us that day. Thank you.

“And forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who is indebted to us.” (Luke 11:4a)
      Forgive us the sin of wanting our own way — of substituting our “good” for what you have said is good. Please help us let go of the debts others owe us.

“And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.” (Luke 11:4b)
      Holy Spirit, please help us recognize temptation for what it is and resist it.

      Father, please help us resist every trick and trap of the evil one.

      Jesus, we ask you to establish you kingdom in our hearts and in the heart of this diocese — give us a will to serve you each day.
