Heavenly Father, please instil in us a deep trust in you that flourishes into faithful prayer. May we see our weakness and sin and cry out to you to transform us through Christ by the power of your Spirit. Help us not to be distracted by any prosperity or abundance but know that these are only ever gifts given by you, and not any source of security. May we draw deeply from your word and know you, and your work, and presence in our life. Cause us to see all your goodness, help us to be thankful at all times. Make us into a group that calls out to you to intervene and restore our broken world, longing for you to bring about all that you have promised in Christ. Please keep us fixing our eyes on Christ, and depending on him with hope and faith.
