Discipleship Prayer

My church is composed of people like me. I help make it what it is. It will be friendly, if I am. It will do great work, if I work. It will make generous gifts to many causes, if I am a generous giver. It will bring other people into its Worship and Fellowship, If I invite and bring them. It will be a church of Loyalty and Love, Of Fearlessness and Faith, and a church with a noble spirit if I, who make it what it is, am filled with these same things. Therefore, with the help of God, I shall dedicate myself to the task of being all the things I want my church to be.
