40 Days of Prayer to Change America

"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 (ESV)

It's been said that combining church denominations is comparable to mixing oil and water; they simply don't mix. God's will, however, is that His people be of one accord. Jesus prayed that we would "be one, just as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You" (John 17:21). First Peter 3:8 says, "Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind." Think of what a mighty weapon a body of people united in Christ would be against the enemy!

  • Pray that denominational barriers are torn down and that believers stand as one in the body of Christ.
  • Pray that petty differences and the spirit of divisiveness—both tools of the enemy—are defeated in the name of Jesus.

DAILY PRAYER

Lord, we know it is Your divine will that the body of Christ stands in one accord. Protect us from the wiles of the enemy and help us to recognize his evil schemes so that we remain vigilant and stand together to fight against him. Let us be in harmony with each other as we walk in the fruit of Your Holy Spirit.
