All-Knowing God, thank you that you are our shield and strength. Your word says that you will bless your church abundantly. Please protect our church leaders from attack, and fill them with fresh vision as they shepherd your people. Strengthen their spirit and restore their souls through the work of your Holy Spirit. May they find rest in your loving care. May the love of the Father, the tenderness of the Son, and the presence of the Spirit, gladden our hearts and bring peace to our soul, today and for all days. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
