Father God, you called us to be adopted into your family. You called us to serve. Bind us together in love as we work for your glory and honor. Increase our commitment to unity and community. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, who commanded that we love one another, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

” …that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery, which is Christ, ” (Colossians 2:2 ESV)
