  • Prayer of Dedication for the Installation of Dr. Robert Cochran

    Prayer of Dedication for the Installation of Dr. Robert Cochran
    as the Executive Director/Minister of the D.C. Baptist Convention
    May 3, 2015
    Montgomery Hills Baptist Church, Silver Spring, Maryland

    Almighty God, who calls and equips, who guides and inspires, we ask your blessing on Dr. Robert Cochran as we set him apart to lead and serve the churches and missions of the D.C. Baptist Convention as our Executive Director/ Minister. May our presence here for this service of Installation be an encouragement as Robert takes on this new role and may our prayers be of support during his length of service.

    We give you thanks, O Lord, for the years of service Robert has already given, for the love he has already demonstrated among us. In this new chapter we ask that you help us to build on what is, to accomplish your will for what is yet to be. We ask that you guide Robert in these new duties, to think in new ways to guide our Convention in right paths according to your purpose. Give Robert discernment to choose what is best and not merely that which is good. Even as we dedicate Dr. Cochran to this service, Lord, help us to dedicate ourselves as clergy and laity, as the gathered church, to express our witness of faith as the D.C. Baptist Convention as we engage our communities with your love and grace and the Good News of Jesus Christ. Strengthen our relationships as brothers and sisters in Christ that the world may know we are Christians by our love.

    We entrust Robert Cochran, Executive Director/Minister to your care and guidance. This is a day that you have made, O Lord, and we will rejoice and be glad. We make our prayer in the name of Jesus our Lord. 

    ~Prayer of Dedication for Dr. Cochran
