Father,

Sometimes we get sidetracked.  Sometimes we lose faith in what we are doing. Sometimes we even lose faith in you.

We forget what we are doing, and the power of the ministry that each one of us has in our lives.

Help each of us to understand the value that we give, the values which we share and the impact that that has on others.

Inspire us to keep going, to finish what we begin and to stay the distance.

Fill us with your power, make us whole and keep us from being distracted by those “shiny things” which can be so appealing.

We pray in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Amen.
