Prayer For Unity In The Body Of Christ

Loving heavenly Father we thank You for sending Your Holy Spirit to be with us, to live in us and to guide us into the way of peace and truth. We pray You would grant all those that are Your children, the spirit of wisdom and unity, so that we may be one, even as You are one with our Lord Jesus Christ – and He with You.

Enable all those that are part of the true Church – the body of Christ, to walk worthy of the calling whereby we have been called - and to live and work together in love and unity. Use us individually and collectively to reflect the love of God…the fellowship of the Holy Spirit and the grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ - so that we may be fruitful branches, and bear much fruit to the glory of God and to the praise of His holy name

Teach us how to live together in unity and fellowship with one another, and lead us into the paths of peace and righteousness - so that we may be well pleasing in Your sight.

Teach us how to love one another as Christ loved us and keep us from doing anything out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but rather teach us humility of heart, so that we consider others before ourselves – and help us to be slow to anger and quick to forgive as we abide in You and You in us – this we ask in the precious name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,

Amen
