Church Prayer  –  Lymm 

Lord God we thank you that you do not need us to be part of a perfect church or for us to be perfect Christians. But we know that you have called us broken and imperfect people to care for a fractured world and to journey with its hurting people. Show us how to use our gifts in your service and our brokenness to your glory. Guide us as we continue to discern your will for this community now and in the future. That what we do may be in your strength as sometimes that is all we have left.
