PRAYERS FOR THE BODY OF BELIVERS
THAT WE MAY BE ONE
1. FOR PROTECTION
I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one.
2. FOR PROCLAMATION / EVANGELISM
I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
3. FOR PROMOTION / LIFE AND BLESSING / TO THE OIL – ANOINTING
How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down on the collar of his robe. It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.
4. FOR PEACE
Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
5. FOR PROGRESS IN SPIRITUAL GROWTH
until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
6. FOR PRAISE TO OUR GOD
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.
7. FOR POWER TO CARRY REVELATION AND ANOINTING
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,
