Prayer For Close Relationships In The Church

Heavenly Father, thank You for the many gifts and graces You give to Your children and for the people that come into our lives who mean so much to us. Thank You for the sweet fellowship we enjoy with brothers and sisters in Christ, and Lord, how good it is to walk when members of Your body live together in love and unity.

Deepen we pray, the bonds of fellowship within the body of Christ and may our hearts be knit together in love in Christ Jesus. Forgive us for the times when our fleshly natures have broken or damaged the precious relationships we have with each other in Christ, and keep us we pray, walking in love, knowing that we are a spiritual house joined together as one in Him.

Thank You, Lord, for those special people and relationships you have placed in my life with whom I enjoy a close bond of unity. May we encourage and edify each other as we wait for the any day return of the Lord Jesus in the air to claim His church for Himself. May we all draw ever closer to each other and to You as we see the day of Your return approaching. We ask this in Jesus' name,
