Dear Lord Jesus,
May every nation worship You, may every knee bow before You, may every tongue praise Your name!
Coming before the Lord, I offer up gratitude and praise for this past year, for You used all circumstances to bless Your church, and all things work together for good for those who love God and are called according to Your purpose.
May You use this pandemic to cleanse Your church, allow Your church to develop stronger faith through perseverance, to gain experiences through tribulation, and to rejoice in hope.
May You bless all the EFC churches, on one hand to add to our faith, on the other hand to solidify our hope, so that we can continue to grow in the love of Christ, to take on the image of our Lord.
May You show mercy towards Your people, to keep Your children away from the evil one, and to protect us from the virus infection. Moreover, use us as the light in the darkness through proclaiming the gospel of peace.
O Lord, may all EFC churches follow You in one heart, to serve You, and to obey the Great Commission that You have given to us. May people of all the earth become Your disciples and to obey Your teachings and commands.
May we worship You in one accord, to love one another in Christ, and to glorify Your name!
Pray in the name of Lord Jesus Christ, amen!
