Prayer: Raise Us Up (1 Corinthians 9.26)

boxing-gloves
1 Corinthians 9:26 CEB
This is how I run- not without a clear goal in sight.
I fight like a boxer in the ring, not like someone who is shadowboxing.

We grow weary in doing good
In doing “church”
Endless tasks grind us down
Weighty needs bury us blow by blow

Holy Spirit
Raise us up from the long count
Raise us up again and again and again
Arouse us
Focus us
Strengthen us
Your calling clearly in our sight
in our hearts
in our hands

Press us on to the prize
Your glory
Your kingdom come
For you are the One, True, Living God
Now and forever
Amen
