Prayer is one of the most important ways we can encounter God and become more like Jesus. Prayer leads us to the very heart of God. Below are some helpful resources to help you pray.
Prayer is important here at Commission Church because we have the opportunity to bless others and love others through prayer. For those who call Commission Church home, you can pray for our local needs in the Prayer Hub. You can share prayer requests 24/7 and in real time. Share any need you have, and our church will be able to pray instantly.
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings with your most gracious
favor, and further us with your continual help; that in all our
works begun, continued, and ended in you, we may glorify
your holy Name, and finally, by your mercy, obtain everlasting
life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
God meet us in the dark nights of our souls. Meet us where we are. Lead us into your light. You are my shepherd. You lead me beside still and peaceful waters. In the darkness, I find comfort in you and my soul is restored. Though darkness surrounds me, I know you are with me. In you, we will be raised to glory. Out of the tomb, you overcame darkness and revealed your glorious light. Praise the Christ, the son of the God of all light.
Lord, make us instruments of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let us sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is discord, union;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
Grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we
are born to eternal life.
O God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, our only Savior,
the Prince of Peace:
Give us grace seriously to lay to heart the great dangers we are in by our unhappy divisions;
take away all hatred and prejudice, and whatever else may hinder us
from godly union and concord;
that, as there is but one Body and one Spirit, one hope of our calling, one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism, one God and Father of us all, so we may be all of one heart and of one soul, united in one holy bond of truth and peace, of faith and charity, and may with one mind and
one mouth glorify you;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
God our Father, you see your children growing up in an unsteady and confusing world:
Show them that your ways give more life than the ways of the world, and that following you is better than chasing after selfish goals.
Help them to take failure, not as a measure of their worth, but as a chance for a new start.
Give them strength to hold their faith in you, and to keep alive their joy in your creation;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
