The Beginning and the End
The First and the Last (Revelation 1:8, 21:6, 22:13)

I AM, Your naming and claiming are stronger than anything we face during these disrupting days
Your naming and claiming are for us and for all.
Your naming and claiming are forever and for always.
Glory to your Holy Name.
We are thankful.
We are humble.
We are grateful for your great grace and your great hope.
We remember all those don’t know they’re your children.
Who don’t know they are found.
We remember those who feel unworthy of you.
Those who think they do not need you.
Those who do not know you exist.
We remember all who are overwhelmed by news and need
Break through our great need and isolation
Help us connect to one another
Help us help others connect to you.
Name those you long to come to faith…
Thank you for hearing our prayer.
You desire none should be lost.
