Holy and Righteous God, you are the God of all. I pray for your church that we, as brothers and sisters in Christ, will strive together in the power of the Holy spirit. Deliver us from the divisive and contentious spirits within the church. Draw us closer together in unity. May our service to you be acceptable and glorify your name. May we come together with joy and be refreshed by one another’s company. I ask these things in the precious name and powerful authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“I appeal to you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in your prayers to God on my behalf, that I may be delivered from the unbelievers in Judea, and that my service for Jerusalem may be acceptable to the saints, so that by God’s will I may come to you with joy and be refreshed in your company. May the God of peace be with you all. Amen.” (Romans 15: 30-33 ESV)
