Prayer For Church Unity

Dear Heavenly Father, You have called us to be Your children, Your church, Your body, and have made us members of one another and joint-heirs with Christ.

We pray for grace and unity in the Church, and ask that You would help us all to live in godly fellowship and brotherly love, and may we be united as one in Christ.

Give us tender hearts, and may we edify and encourage each other as we fellowship together in the Spirit, knowing that when two or three are gathered together in Your name, there are You in the midst.

Help the whole church of God to live together in joyful harmony and sweet unity, and may we learn to work together with one mind and one purpose, to lift up the name of Jesus and to point people to the Rock of our salvation.

Keep us from selfish ambition and foolish arrogance and may we become humble in spirit, thinking of others as better than ourselves, as we look to the Lord Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith and our perfect pattern for living in Christian unity, as befits Your children. We ask this in Jesus' name,
