Father, build your church. Let us see it arise, grow strong and spread in this place. Lord you are the solid foundation, never changing for all generations. Your will stands. Who can reverse what you do? Who holds a candle to your power and might? You watch over your word to see it performed. Be glorified in the outcome, Father. I pray in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against It.” (Matthew 16: 18 ESV)
