Dear Loving Father,
We are thankful for the men who have spent the week preparing their hearts, their minds, their thoughts, and their words that they will deliver to the Church on Sunday. Father, they will preach to some people who believe that Sunday is the only day they work. That fact alone, causes some of us to believe that Sunday is our day, our time to shine, our time to prove to people the worth of what we do.
Dear God, please deliver us from this mentality. Help us never forget that this is not our day. It is not the church's day. It is Your Day. Help us to remember that it is the Day that we must do everything within our power to let Your love, Your Word, Your Power, and Your Strength shine. Father, deliver us from thinking that we have something to prove about ourselves, other than the fact that we are Your servants and the vessel through which Your Word is delivered. Help us Dear God to call those who hear us to You, help us to focus every heart on Your Glory, and help us to dedicate all that we have, as well as all that we are to You.
In Jesus Name we Pray,
