Lectionary Text and Prayers for India: Luke 11:1-13
Prayer answering God, we thank you that Jesus has indeed taught us to pray and for that we bless your Name. Today our eyes are turned toward India and our partners in the Churches of North and South India. We thank you for their commitment to be a sign of your Reign in their communities. We ask that you provide what they need each day to sustain themselves and their ministries. Keep them close to you and don't let them be tempted by false hopes or dreams. Help us to support one another as we seek to follow the prompting of your Spirit. Amen
(Prayer by Bob Shebeck)
