pmc prayerGod, I pray this morning for my church.
I know I’m not supposed to call it that.
“My” church.
Because it’s not mine. Not really.
It is your church.
And for that I am grateful.
But it feels like mine, too.
My hope.
My pain.
My joy.
My energy.
My love.
My people.
I pray for them, God.
I pray for us.
For our peace and comfort
even when . . .
For your light and grace
even though . . .
For our faithfulness
even if . . .
I pray.
For us.
For them.
For your church, God.
And mine.

Amen.
