Unity has been a core pillar of Unite Midwest since the very beginning. In a world that screams division, we believe that God calls us to radical unity. This means that as people who live with a Kingdom mindset, we strive to seek unity in all areas of life. Jesus is the great unifier. In our own human power, we can not bring people together. One of the key foundations to living a life of unity is prayer for supernatural breakthrough.
Today, we ask that you would join us in this prayer for unity:
Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!…For there the Lord has commanded the blessing, life forevermore.
You have created us and saved us to unite in worship before You. We have experienced times of worshipping together as Your people, tasting the joy of the day when we finally come home as Your beloved daughters and sons. But we come before You now as a broken household. At times we have ignored, offended or quitely despise one another.Even minor differences can shatter friendships in the family of faith. Bring us together again. Train us in what is good. Restore what pleases You. And pour out Your blessings as we gather as Your family.
I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
When petty agendas or grudges divide us, we are rightly ridiculed by the world for our foolish religious superiority. But when we are fused as one in Your purpose, co-working with You as You co-worked with the Father, we can reflect Your glory to all the world. You have loved us and saves us so that we may bear Your beauty. Make us one so that the world will know the glorious love of the Father.
- For believers to set aside jealousies, repent of sins against each other and be renewed in unity.
- For divided congregations to become reconciled, reflecting Christ’s beauty.
- That churches in your community would work and worship together.”
