Week of June 25th, 2017
United States – God, You are light; in You there is no darkness at all. Help us bear with one another in love, doing nothing out of selfish ambition. Clothe us with Your compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. May we take Your yoke upon us and learn from You, for You are gentle and humble in heart, and we will find rest for our souls (1 John 1:5; Ephesians 4:2; Philippians 2:3; Colossians 3:12; Matthew 11:29).
EUROPE/MIDDLE EAST – God, give Your workers in Europe and the Middle East the confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way opened for them through the curtain, that is, His body. Help those in this region who walk in darkness to see Your great light and may they see Your workers’ good deeds and glorify You, their Father in heaven. And let the peace of Your Son, Jesus, rule in the hearts of Your people (Hebrews 10:19–20; Isaiah 9:2; Matthew 5:16; Colossians 3:15).
