We have come to worship God,?but must leave to continue our worship.
We have come to experience God’s presence, ?but must leave to fully experience his presence.
We have come here to appreciate God’s holiness,?but must leave so his holiness can be seen in us.
We must leave Sunday to enter Monday,?and find Monday is as full of God as Sunday.
We must leave to enter our front lines,?and we discover God is there before us.
?We will return here in joy to meditate,?on the God who has loved us?wherever we’ve been.?
(This prayer is based on a prayer from Session 4 in the Life on the Frontline DVD series from the LICC?(p.22) ?Neil Parker modified the prayer for use at Toowoomba Community Baptist Church during the “Thank God It’s Monday” sermon series, August-September 2013. ?The prayer was very well received by a number of people in the congregation as expressing their desire to serve God on their frontline.)
