Fasting Fortnight

Bob Hostetler

Abba, I offer these next two weeks to you as a fast,
a prayer, and ask you to please show yourself to me,
to us (Cobblestone) as a church,
and especially to our leadership team.

Lead us to the fast you have chosen, Lord;
prompt us to seek you sincerely, purely, completely.
Fulfill in us these next two weeks your promise
to answer when we call,
to speak when we are listening,
to lead us when we are attentive to follow.

I praise you and thank you for the spacious place you've put us in, Lord;
that we are even at the point of deliberating on our first building, our next phase, our eventual campus, is a miracle of grace.

Protect us, Lord.
Preserve the leaders of Cobblestone.
Protect them from the Evil One.
Save us all, and guide us, in Jesus' name, amen.
