Build Your Kingdom Here in the SED

A Prayer for the
 Professional Church Workers Conference
of the Southeastern District-LCMS.
 based on lyrics from
 “Build Your Kingdom Here”
 by Rend Collective Experiment

Lord God, 
come set Your rule and reign in the hearts of everyone at the Professional Church Workers Conference of the Southeastern District.  Be the Master of attitudes, the Master of conversations, the Master of actions, the Master of all we are.  May there be more of You and less of self in all of our lives.  Holy Spirit, invade us now.  We need Your power to be a part of building Your kingdom here.  Set Your Church on fire.  May the darkness fear as we serve You with all our hearts, all our souls, all our minds, and with all of our strength.  No force of hell can stop how Your beauty and grace changes hearts.  Fill us with the love of Christ!  We want to set Christ apart as Lord and seek Your kingdom first.  We hunger and thirst for You, Lord God, King of the universe.  We lay down our lives for Your cause, Your will to be done.  Unveil our eyes and help us see You more clearly than ever before, Your desires, Your dreams for Your people.  Build Your kingdom here, we pray, in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Amen.

(song rewritten into this prayer by Dawn Boyd)

Where do you see hope
 in Kingdom building
 in the Southeastern District- LCMS?
