Father, we pray for the board today as they meet to resolve the crisis at Asbury.
We ask you to give them all extraordinary wisdom, that they may see possibilities unseen
We ask for insight, that hidden thoughts may be seen openly
We ask for objectivity, that biases will yield to truth
We ask for a merciful spirit, that all of us might obtain mercy
We ask for selflessness, that the greater good might be achieved
We ask for courage, to do what needs to be done
We ask for humility, for we are all but dust
We ask for your grace to inundate the mediator, President Greenway, Chair Jim Smith, Vice Chair Dan Johnson, the members of the Executive Committee, and those on the broader board. May they make a sweet smelling savor in your presence today,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.
