Father God, I pray for your Church. I come humbly and with reverence for who you are to ask that your Holy Spirit move mightily among your beloved. I pray for sweet spirits among the beloved and for an attitude of service and ministry toward one another. Let us not put ourselves above our fellow members. Let us love fully and unconditionally as you would have us do. I pray others will know we follow Christ by our love and respect for one another. Forgive us where we fail you, Father. Renew us in your Word for your name’s sake. I ask in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves.” (1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 ESV)
