Loving Father, thank you that you are great and abundant in power, your understanding is beyond measure. You have promised that you will fight for us while we remain still, rooted in you. Please protect your church, Lord, from the attacks of the enemy. Root out the sin that causes relational conflict that can harm your church. Fill your people with love and humility. May the Lord Jesus Christ, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort our hearts and establish us in every good work. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
