Household Prayer: Community, city on a hill

Brothers, today I’m praying for the community in light of current events and the play to use administrative regulation to coerce private companies to enforce unlawful mandates. We may have those that lose jobs in our churches and community or otherwise have to wrestle with this decision. And if the state forces vaccines for children in government schools we may see many families needing help and encouragement to homeschool. I’m praying that we love and serve one another well in our CC and church communities through these times. Finally, I pray that our love for one another in our community would bear witness to the love of God in the larger community. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14

“Arise, O Lord! Let not man prevail; let the nations be judged before you!”

Psalm 9:19 ESV

““You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden… In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”

Matthew 5:14, 16 ESV

“The City on a Hill strategy shows that a small segment can have broad effects. One town—Magdeburg, Germany—probably saved the Reformation.”
