Prayer for April 26: Please pray with me. God who pursues us, don’t stop. You love your church and your people. So often we try to put you in a box. It is our effort to control you. When everything is in the box, it is contained. But you are a God who refuses to be contained. You are a God who unleashes love, often in spite of what we are doing. Move us from thinking of your church as a membership organization to something much more – a movement, a disciple making machine. If we only think of your church as a membership organization, then what we are really doing is attempting to limit you and set our expectations very low. But when you are unleashed, lives are changed. Remain unleashed. Amen.
