Heavenly Father, how good it is when Christian brothers and sisters live and grow together in union with each other and in love with the Lord Jesus. I thank You for every member of our church and the friendships that have developed between us.
May we individually and collectively be filled day by day with a knowledge of You, and may we all grow together in love and be filled with all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that together we may walk worthily of the Lord and live godly in Christ Jesus.
Keep us from all foolish arguments or bitternesses, which can so often destroy the gracious fellowship that You desire of all Your children. Bind us together in love, by the power of Your Holy Spirit and give each one the gifts and graces that are needed and as You see fit, so that together we may minister to each other as we unite together to worship You. We ask this in Jesus' name,
