”I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.”
– 1 Corinthians 1:10

Day 22 – Unity in the Church

The world is a divided place in nearly every sphere of life. One of the ways the church can be a city on a hill is by its unifying spirit. That’s not to say there aren’t disagreements or hard decisions, but that the demeanor of the pastors and congregation seek unity and peace. Pastors play a significant role in exemplifying and leading their church towards unity.

As you pray for your pastor today, consider praying for him in these ways:

  • Personal spirit of unity
  • For a life of the fruits of the spirit
  • A church that desires unity and peace among one another
  • Ability to see the Gospel above all and pursue it above preferences

*These prayers are a part of our series of prayers for pastors during Pastor Appreciation Month. A new prayer will release every morning throughout the month for pastors and their members to reflect on and pray.

How does God's Word impact our prayers?

God invites His children to talk with Him, yet our prayers often become repetitive and stale. How do we have a real conversation with God? How do we come to know Him so that we may pray for His will as our own?

In the Bible, God speaks to us as His children and gives us words for prayer—to praise Him, confess our sins, and request His help in our lives.
