Itinerant Minister Ralf Friedrichs

Dear God of all people around the globe,

We come to you today humbly praying that you will empower us to use our vision and our ability to explore new frontiers in ways that are pleasing to you and are empowering to all people.

As we celebrate Columbus Day, we pray that we will use our talents and strengths in ways that are pleasing to you.   Make us willing to challenge false notions about our world just as Columbus challenged the false notions of his day that the world was flat.  Give us the courage to venture forth on the missions on which you send us when we are launching out into the unknown.  Help us believe that you will guide us and will provide for us, will protect us and be with us.   Keep us close to you in prayer and help us to fall on our knees in thankfulness when we reach the places you are sending us.

Help us to be shocked at our materialistic thoughts about bottom lines, business and monetary gain that are devoid of human compassion and which break the moral laws and trounce upon the rights of others.  

Forgive us for enslaving others and exploiting the poor and the needy.  Forgive us for believing that those of other cultures are inferior and that because they have not yet had the opportunity to embrace your gospel that they are less than worthy of your love.  Instead, help us to proclaim over them your welcoming word in John 3:16 where it says, “For God so loved the world that he sent his only Son that whoever believes in him should not perish
