Father God, thank You for gathering us here to worship You together. You saved us, blessed us, and called us Your children. Thank You, Father.

Father we thank You for sending us Your one and the only Son, Jesus, to save us from sin. Before we were under the influence of sin but now we are saved and living as Your children. That's all by Your grace, thank You. We believe in Jesus, only in Jesus and nothing else. We confess there is no other way to come to our heavenly Father, only through Jesus we can come to You. We believe that our salvation doesn't depend on our personality, our good deeds, our ability, and any other things but it is given by You freely and we pay nothing for it, we just have to believe that Jesus paid for our sins. We praise and worship You for Your grace and mercy.

Father I pray for my country seriously. Nowadays my country South Korea faces crises of liberty, equality, and fraternity. Mass media are already under the control of the government, and the major newspapers are extremely biased. People have no choice to listen to other voices from them. The rights to know and to talk and to communicate are being threatened. This government doesn't want to communicate to the people, but just want to rule over by force. More and more, we are losing our chance to speak out for our rights, like in the cases of Yongsan and Korail. Even the constitutional court is biased to say the media law is valid which was passed not by following the right process. This government doesn't care about the poor and the weak, and they only care about the policy for the rich. And the 4 rivers project which is full of risks for the environment and the economy, is going on for making issue and keeping their political power in spite of reducing the budgets for the poor. Father so I pray for my country. I pray for the basic human rights, equality, and freedom. I pray for the democracy of this country. Father, remember my country and pour Your grace to it. Your justice, love, and grace may rule over this country.

Father I also pray for North Korea. The people in North Korea are lack of food and even die of hunger. Please send them food. And God change the country and give the people power to support themselves. The people are also lack of freedom and human rights. Father only Your love and grace can help them. Bless North Korea.

We pray for the today's sermon. bless pastor Chung and be with him when he delivers Your message. Touch our minds by Your words, and change our lives more like Jesus day by day.

Father we love You.
We pray in Jesus name, Amen.

대표기도하면서 이렇게 떨려보긴 처음이다. 기도하러 나갈 때도 떨렸고, 들어오면서도 떨렸다.
그래도 기도해야한다고 생각했기에 기도했다.

이렇게 기도하고 나니 목사님께서 "기도하느라 수고하셨어요" 라고 말씀하셨고,
평소에 잘 이야기도 안 나누던 어떤 분이 오셔서
"나라와 민족을 위한 기도 잘 들었습니다. 제가 신문사에 있다보니 소식을 많이 듣게 되는데, 공감되는 기도입니다."
라고 하셨다.

직접 말씀하지 않으셨지만 이 기도에 불편해하신 분들도 많았으리라 생각한다.
옳고 그름은 명확히 보이지 않을 때가 많다.
그래서 참 조심스럽다.
그저 하나님께서 일하시기를 바랄 뿐이다.
