So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples. - John 13:34-35
Your love is flawless, perfect, it is like none other. Help us to love another as you first loved us. God, we pray for the Pastors and Staff of Roswell Presbyterian. We pray that our church would be an environment which exudes your love; that the people who work here and pray here would strive always to show your love to one another. We pray that when an outsider walks through our doors, they would simply be overwhelmed by the love that they witness within our walls. And Lord, we pray that this love would reach beyond the walls of RPC, and it would be visible to all as we seek to do good in the world in your name. Lord, we pray that our Pastors and Staff would feel loved by us, the congregants. As your disciples, help us to show our Pastors and Staff love and and appreciation for all they do in your name, and also for who each of them is as your child. In your love for us, you have sacrificed for us. Help us to sacrifice our needs as well as we love our Pastors and Staff.
Let us also be generous in showing our love to the members of our PNC. Let us not quibble or bicker or second-guess one another, but let us act only in love, showing each other grace and mercy always. Let our love for one another be proof to all of those around us that we truly are your disciples and that it is only you we seek to serve.
In your most holy name we pray, AMEN.
