God, Help Us Unite: A Prayer for the Modern Church

John 17:21 is a verse that’s near and dear to our hearts at Life.Church Open Network.

 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.

Jesus prays for us to be unified. Undivided. One. And He prays that over us so that the world will find Him.

Like many of you, our hearts are heavy with all that’s happening in the world today—so much uncertainty. And while we don’t have all the answers, we serve a God who does. 

Life.Church Pastors Craig and Amy Groeschel, and their friends Pastors Herbert and Tiffany Cooper of People’s Church held a special prayer and worship service in early June on Facebook and YouTube. As you guide your church through recent events and tensions, watch their service and join us in prayer for reconciliation and healing.

As you ask God to help you lead your family and your church, dig in to one of these Bible reading plans for God’s wisdom, discernment, and direction:
