The “church” is made up of all of us who trust and follow Jesus. In one of His last recorded prayers, Jesus prayed…
Father, I am in them and You are in Me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know You sent Me and that You love them as much as You love Me. John 17:23
When I look around at all the different denominations and read some of the clashes between Christians on social media … well, we need God’s help.
So, I’m asking God to bless and protect us by the power of His Spirit … and praying that He will unite us with His truth and His love.
God, Please Bless and Protect
Your Church with Truth
Father, The attacks on Your children and Your church are many … coming from without and within.
We need You.
“Where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.” Matthew 18:20
Please pour out Your Spirit on our churches Father. As we gather in Jesus name, please guide us by Your truth.
Please protect Your church.
It’s so easy to allow culture and denominational differences to distract us and tear us apart … and honestly, it’s hard not to get discouraged.
You promised that when we seek You above all else You will give us everything we need.
