Prayer: Running the Race

Here’s a prayer of thanksgiving and petition inspired by 2 Timothy 4: 6-8 and Hebrews 12: 1-3.  It was written by Rev. Ralph Wilson.

(inspired by 2 Timothy 4: 6-8 and Hebrews 12: 1-3)

thank you so much for your faithfulness to us in the difficult times.
Help each of us to run with perseverance
the race that you set before us
and to finish that race well with your help.
Help us to keep the faith
and the teaching that you have entrusted to us
and pass it on faithfully to those in the next generation
who can teach others also.
We know you will be with us to the end.
We know that your grace is sufficient.
In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.
