“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.” (John 17:20-21 NIV)
Lord, we agree with your prayer. May we, the Church, be one so that the world will believe that you love them. We refuse to allow selfish ambition and pride to dominate our hearts. We choose to rejoice with other churches in our city when they prosper and grow. Help us to maintain the spirit of unity in the bond of peace. We declare blessings over every church in our city.
Father, heal our divisions and strife. Baptize us with a sincere love for the brethren! Let it be said that our city knows that we are followers of Jesus because we have love for one another.
