Dear Lord,

Thank you for a new day in which we get to worship You freely. Thank You for the plans You have laid out for us from before the foundations of the earth were laid. We worship You. We praise You. We love You. Let our hearts burn with passion for You, Your Word, and the people around us. There are so many burnt-out hearts and quenched passions in our world, and we need You to ignite our hearts once again. Anoint the service with power. Anoint Your people with power to go out into the world around us with a radical love that can change the world. Jesus, Your love goes beyond politics, economics, race, creeds, and borders. Fill us with Your love so that the world will know that we are Your disciples, and that You have sent us out.
