That We May Be One
Father, in the name of Jesus we ask for your continued help in becoming a united people called by your name.
Lord Jesus, you prayed that we may be one as you and the Father are one. You gave us the glory that God gave you that we may be one. You sent forth the Spirit of truth to guide us and lead us into all the truth: to sanctify and unify us through the truth. Father, in the name of Jesus we thank you that you send your Spirit of truth to guide us and lead us into all the truth. We pray that you send forth your Spirit of truth to guide us and lead us into all the truth. We submit ourselves to you and to the guidance of your Spirit of truth to be conformed to the truth and made into a united people called by your name. We ask that you guide us into the truth of those things hindering unity and the truth for removing them. We ask that you guide us into the truth of those things we need to be united and the truth for building them into our lives. We ask you to guide us into the truth of putting off the old man and putting on the new man: the truth of being created as a united people in righteousness and true holiness.
We thank you that you gave apostles, and prophets, and evangelists, and pastors, and teachers to form us as a people united by faith, truth, and love as we submit ourselves to you and one another. We pray that you send them forth to minister faith, truth, and unity to us. Help us understand true submission to their ministries.
Father, cause us to be diligent and aware of the winds of doctrine and deception that cause division. Open our eyes to see the false reliance on doctrine for righteousness instead of relying on you. Only by pride comes the contention that causes division. Help us to see and overcome it. Guide us into truth with your Spirit of truth. Open our ears to hear what the Spirit says. Build in us the humility we need to be one. Help us understand that true unity can only come through true humility.
Help us understand submission one to another. Help us trust one another through our trust in you. We put our trust in you and your work in those you instruct us to submit to.
In the name of the Lord Jesus we bind pride, fear, doubt, discouragement, self-righteousness, lust, and all other forces that work against unity and cast them into the sea.
Satan, in the name of Jesus you must let us be made into a united people called by God’s name. You don’t have the power and authority to stop it.
