DAY 6 – ONENESS FOCUS FOCUS
20 “I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, 21 that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. (John 17:20-21)
PRAY FOR UNITY OF THE “GLOCAL” CHURCH – Pray for unity amongst our local body, especially during our season of transition. Pray for unity of our brothers and sisters in Bucharest during their season of planting. Lastly, pray that there is unity amongst the global church, Christ’s bride. Prayer that God’s glory is revealed through His Church’s oneness found in the Holy Spirit.
PRAY FOR UNITY OF OUR NATION AS WE TRANSITION LEADERSHIP – As we transition leadership in our nation, please pray for a peaceful transition and for the citizens of our country to focus on the citizenship we have in common as opposed to focusing on that which divides us. Pray that bridges are built instead of walls.
PRAY FOR UNITY TO LEAD TO GOSPEL IMPACT – Jesus prays for our unity because it has direct impact on the world’s belief in Him and His being sent by His Father. Pray that our unity through transition impacts the world we interact with throughout this entire time – pray that contractors, architects, tenants, athletes, sellers, brokers, managers, and any other interaction we have would be impacted for Christ.
PRAISE GOD – Praise God for being our source of our unity! Praise him for putting His love on display through the sending of His Son! Give Him thanks and pray you reflect His glory!
