Dear Lord, help us as we venture into unknown futures. Let us hear the song you sing over us. May we sing it to those around us to draw them to you. Captivate hearts with the sound and message of your gospel. Lead our thoughts, words and steps as we move out of our comfort zone to cross cultural barriers, to reach out to others in our communities. Take us outside the doors of our comfortable church surroundings. Give us a loving countenance to those we encounter. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“How shall we sing the LORD’s song in a foreign land?” (Psalm 137:4 ESV)
