In the Church
where there is corruption,
may the Lord cleanse;
where there is error,
may the Lord correct;
where there is lack,
may the Lord supply;
where there is discord,
may the Lord grant love;
where there is loss of power to be His witnesses,
may the Lord restore;
where there is pride and self-sufficiency,
may the Lord discipline;
where there is humility, goodness, unity and mutual love,
may the Lord bless and strengthen.
All this we ask in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Head of the Church.
K.H Ting, 1915 – 2012, Chinese Protestant minister and leader
God has put all things under the authority of Christ
and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church.
And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ,
who fills all things everywhere with himself.
