Praying with Paul: 'United in Christ'

1 Corinthians 1:10-13

Dear Father, the one and only God of your one holy people,

Help me never to be part of any division within the body of Christ. Let me be perfectly united in mind and heart with all who follow you. Help me not be some kind of -ite, -ist, or -anian. Keep me from misplacing my loyalties with this man or that!

Christ, of whom I am part, is not divided. He is of one mind. So let me and all his people be together and in agreement. Let us be like-minded, having the same love, one in spirit and purpose.

Help us do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility help us count each other better than ourselves. Let us look out for the interests of each other, not just our own.

In the name of Jesus Christ, the Source of our unity and salvation, I ask these things. Amen.
