We thank You for those You have called.
As Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers.
To equip Your people for works of service.
So that the body of Christ may be built up.
May we reach unity in the faith.
United in the knowledge of the Son of God.
Bring us to a place of maturity.
Where together we attain to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
Let us no longer be infants.
Blown here and there by every wind of teaching and philosophy of man.
Instead, may we speak Your truth.
Growing up into Christ, our head.
From which the whole body.
Joined and held together in Him.
Would grow and be built upon love.
With each and every one of us doing our part.
In Your great work.
In the name of Jesus (Messiah), Amen.
Ephesians 4 v 11-16
