Father God, pull your teams aside to rest, regroup and re-establish bonds as they move forward in ministry. Teams within and without churches, ministers and ministries, small groups and prayer groups, Bible study groups and work groups, Father, all need time to retreat into you and rest between your powerful shoulders. Give them good food from your Word and nourishment from your Holy Spirit. Tighten the bonds between them and close any chasms that hold them apart. Remove anything that stands in the way of their working together for your glory. Take away any stress and melt their hearts together in unity, for you called them for your singular purpose, Father. I pray for their bond of unity and success in ministry in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call—” (Ephesians 4:4 ESV)
