Pray for the CRC and all who are affected by the decisions made this year:

God, we pray for a humble spirit and open heart as we cast our cares on you. 

Jesus, we trust that as we take up our cross daily and follow you, you will give us strength for the journey you have called us to. 

Holy Spirit, come fill our hearts and minds and replace our anxieties and fears with your peace and shalom. Build your church, Lord, come quickly. Amen.
