Let Us Come Together Before God: Psalm 85

I come before you to offer up a prayer for the church in China. In the midst of the double hardship of persecution and isolation, protect our gatherings in your presence. Forgive us our sins: our apathy toward you, our lust for worldly benefits, our compromises with the world, even our pursuit of the values of this world…In this hour of darkness, lead your church to gather before your throne of grace.
