Prayer: O Lord, as we come in prayer to You, we think of the night You prayed for us. You prayed that we might be with You where You are and see Your glory and then You went to the cross to make it possible. So Lord, we come before You in submission and in awe. Revive us with a fresh sense of Your glory and a deep desire to see it manifest across our region and our country.

This we humbly ask in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
