Heavenly Father, in a world that is increasingly hostile to Christians, we pray that You would do a work in the heart and lives of each member of Your Body. Give us wisdom and strength as we face this time of increasing aggression. Knit us together in love and fellowship we pray, and release into our hearts a deep desire to lift up our brothers and sisters in Christ, in intercession and prayer.
Perfect each and every member of Your church world-wide. Draw us ever closer to each other and to You and sanctify Your Church with the washing of the water of the Word, so that she might be made perfect and holy, without blemish and free from every spot and wrinkle.
Use each member of Your body to be a witness of Your grace and love, and knit us together in holy fellowship and sweet communion, so that the world may know that You are the Lord and we are Your children. Thank You in Jesus’ name,
Dear Lord, I know that I am commanded to abide in You and I desire to live my life day by day, simply resting and abiding in You. Teach me Lord how to abide in You, so that all that is of myself will melt away as the Spirit of Christ pulses through my being.
Give me the strength to be a fruitful branch, for You alone are my sufficiency. Enable me to abide in Your love so that I may produce much fruit, out of the abundance of Your grace. In Jesus’ name I pray,
Heavenly Father, more and more I come to understand what the Lord Jesus meant when He said that He is one with the Father, and prayed that His disciples may be one. I see that love is a precious union of heart and a sweet communion of spirit, and just as the Father and Son emanate the same powerful love, so we too are to have that same beautiful love developing in us, by the power of the Spirit.
Lord, I pray that the body of Christ may become united as one, and abound in the unity of the spirit more and more in love, not compromising truth but showing a genuine concern for one another. I pray that individually and collectively, we may live godly lives in Christ Jesus and seek to encourage and edify one another, seeking to be of the same mind and having the same godly love for each another.
I pray that we may be united in spirit and in purpose, and that we do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but rather with humility of mind regard the needs of the other as more important than our own. This I ask in the name of Jesus, Who died for us all.
