Prayer Focus for October 17-23

UNITY

 As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you
have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one
another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond
of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope
when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all,
who is over all and through all and in all.
Ephesians 4:1-6

I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all
of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions
among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.
1 Corinthians 1:10


Heavenly Father, we come to you today because we are a needy people. Many
are struggling with what they are seeing and experiencing in our world today.
Others are hurting and afraid of the discourse they see but not sure how to
respond to it. Father, we ask that you give us wisdom and revelation as to how to
stand together as your church. Give us the ability to set aside any differences that
we might have and look to you for the opportunity to bring unity and peace
wherever possible. We ask that your love would work so powerfully through us in
these days that it would have a life changing impact in our world. Father we ask
that you protect us from any scheme of the enemy that would try to divide,
confuse or bring strife of any kind. We ask that you make us one by the power of
the Holy Spirit so that your church can be your church in these days! Its in Jesus’
name we pray, Amen!
