A Prayer for the LCMS Convention

The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod 2010 convention is being held in Houston, Texas from Friday, July 9 to Saturday, July 17.  Please pray for our brothers in the faith.

Almighty God and Lord, grant the delegates in Houston Your presence.  Enlighten and guide them by Your Word that in all matters of deliberation they may always consider the best interests of Your Church.  Let Your Holy Spirit rule and direct their hearts that, in the spirit of Christian love, they may present and discuss matters truthfully and be kindly disposed toward one another, to the end that all they say and do may please You; in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
