Spiritual Warfare: 'Jesus Prayed for Our Unity, So Let's Pursue It'

God's Power for Our Battles — Tuesday, November 23, 2021

I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one — as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.
— John 17:20-21 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, thank You for praying for me—I believe in You and in Your message. Forgive me for focusing on the things that DIVIDE us rather than the things that can UNITE us in our kingdom work. Give us the wisdom to unite around the foot of Your cross and work together to help win a lost world to the truth. Give us the right words at the right moment, Lord, and the boldness to speak up and say those words. Then may those words penetrate hearts. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
