Heavenly Father, I bring myself and ______________________ before you this day. I pray that you will use us as your servants to invite others to the wedding feast you have prepared for your Son. Please send each of us where you want us to go that we may invite anyone we find. You tell us here that many are called but only few are chosen and so I pray that we will continue to invite all we can to come to you and leave the results of our invitations in your hands. Use us to gather the guests of your choosing until your wedding hall is filled. Please open to us a door for the word so that we may proclaim it clearly to others as we should. May we be wise in the way we act toward outsiders and make the most of every opportunity to share with them. May our conversation with them always be full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that we may know how to answer everyone. I pray that we ourselves will pay careful attention to you and your word and not allow ourselves to be among those who are not worthy of your kingdom because they disregard you and are consumed with their own pursuits. We also know there will be those who violently oppose you and those who speak for you. When we are treated shamefully for speaking for you, remind us to entrust them to you and your justice, and to remember that one day they must stand before you and answer to you. I pray that we will clothe ourselves with the righteousness of Christ, and lay aside the filthy rags of our own righteousness. May you will always find us clothed with him and accepted in your sight because we have put on Christ and hidden our lives in him. This I pray in the name of Christ, amen.
