Abstract cross in church interiorMONDAY, JUNE 6

Praying to know God’s will is a step-by-step, little-by-little experience. It is an experience in which God is the giver, and we are the receivers. Praying to know God’s will requires listening, putting ourselves into the position of receptivity, and then taking the next few steps in relation to what we have seen and heard.
– Steve Harper, Walking in the Light


Lord, we pray our UMC leaders are open to receiving Your divine will for our church and its people. Mold us, shape us so that we walk in the way that leads to life.  Amen.
