40 DAYS OF PRAYER FOR OUR NATION | DAY 32 | 10/25/2020

INTERCEEDING FOR UNITY IN THE BODY OF CHRIST AND IN OUR NATION:

SCRIPTURES: JOHN 17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

JOHN 17:20-23 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

THOUGHT: Just before being betrayed and taken into custody Jesus prayed for the unity of His disciples and for unity among all in the future who would believe in Him for salvation.

Jesus continues even now to intercede for His Church. The enemy sows seeds of discord in every possible way, hoping that we might unknowingly join in with his plan to divide us. We must deny and uproot the ungodly strife from our own hearts and live soberly, righteousnessly, and peacefully with one another to fulfill Jesus’ purposes and plans.

PRAYER: LORD, I repent, asking Your forgiveness for any and every time that I, by my words or actions, intentionally caused discord or strife. Help me to be a reconciler rather than a divider in all my relationships. Help me to fulfill Jesus’ prayer by being a force for mercy, peace, love and reconciliation. In Jesus’ Name.

We also pray for our nation where harsh words, strife and violence are modeled from the leaders throughout every area of our societies. LORD, we intercede for a major change in the heart of this country. Bring peace, love and joy by Your Word and by Your Spirit. In Jesus’ Name.

Turn us around LORD, that we as a nation turn back to the source from which we came. Let it be a Sovereign work of Your own hand to turn this nation around. In Jesus’ Name. AMEN! 

About Pastor Lawrence A. Fox

We believe that along with many others, we are called by Jesus Christ to engage in a world-wide effort to reach those in and out of the Christian world with the message of full salvation and healing in His name. This effort starts in our own hearts through the power of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. It then finds growth and nourishment in the fellowship of the local church and fans out through every believer’s home, in our neighborhoods, with our relatives, in the workplace and in every human interaction that we engage in on this side of eternity. We are excited to be ambassadors for God in bringing His message to a lost and dying world. II Corinthians 5:18-20 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
