Day 10 - June 9, 2012
God will be honored by people attending the Indiana Annual Conference. Go forth to serve God in your communities as you exemplify ways to make room for Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit in your lives.
Numbers 6:24-26 (NIV1984)
24 The LORD bless you and keep you; 25 the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; 26 the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.
Isaiah 60:1, 2 (CEB)
Arise! Shine! Your light has come; the LORD’s glory has shone upon you. 2 Though darkness covers the earth and gloom the nations, the LORD will shine upon you; God’s glory will appear over you.
Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV1984)
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
Adonai, Lord God Almighty, we humble our hearts before your throne with great love and devotion. Thank you for your presence before, during and after the Indiana Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church in Indianapolis. We have sought your presence during each event so you can display your mighty works. We pray that the wave of godly leadership, inspirational worship, enlightening training, divine encounters, deeds of kindness, unity of purpose, salvations, healings, and miracles will travel like a refreshing river across the state. Holy Spirit, please blow the spark of revival to ignite souls to make room for you to serve you around the state. We truly give you the honor, praise and worship due your name for your majesty dwelling in the Indiana Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. Strengthen us and give us courage that The United Methodist Church will be known as a denomination that shows the “Glory of God,” welcomes others with “Open Doors with Open Hearts and Open Minds,” and will be known as people who Make Room for God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit”. We love you and adore you, now and forever. Thank you for answering our prayers. Amen.
A special thank you is expressed to the Encounters Sunday School Class from Chapel Hill United Methodist Church in Indianapolis and their contributing writers: Bill Barnhill, Bill Byers, Janet Byers, Ann Crider, Linda Hankins, Jacquie Meisenhelder, Karen Richards, and Ruth Esther Vawter.
