21 Days of Prayer

UNITY - 21 Days of Prayer (August 6-27, 2022)

Saturday - August 6 through Saturday - August 27, 2022
Psalm 133:1 - Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!

Unity means oneness. It is the opposite of divided. Christians who are united
and surrendered to God will see a mighty move of God. This means that one of
Satan’s goals is to bring disunity in the Church. If he can succeed, then the Church
can be hindered from fulfilling its purpose to make Him known. That is why it is
so important that we fast and pray for unity.

Pray with humility expectantly looking for how God is working to address our
hearts, bring hope, healing and excitement as He moves us together. It all comes
back to God. We are unable to do anything on our own. It is God who even gives
us the will to do good works. We are wretched and dead, but God is able, is ready
and desires to bring sanctification to His church and salvation to a lost world.

This will be the pattern for our devotions each week:

P · Praise Him for who He is, Practice His presence
R · Repent of your sin and turn back to Him
A · Ask God to do what only He can do (His will be done, not yours)
Y · Yield, surrender in love and obedience to whatever He desires to do in your life

Praying for Unity

Lord, give us a strong and steadfast desire to gather together faithfully: in church services, house meetings, prayer meetings, camp meetings, etc. As we gather together, help us to allow the gifts of the Spirit and the fruit of the Spirit to operate through us so that we can be a blessing to our brothers and sisters in Christ, provoking one another unto love and to good works. (Hebrews 10:24-25)

Lord, help us to continue steadfastly in the truth and fellowship; that we would break the bread of your Word together as well as share meals together in hospitality. Lord, help us to pray together in unity so that the results of these meetings will compare to those mentioned in Acts 2:42-47. Let’s pray that as we are united together that wonders and signs will occur; that we would share our abundance with those in need; that we would be in one accord when we gather together; that we would praise you above all else desiring Your presence in our midst; and as we follow this pattern that many souls will be added to the Church on a daily basis.

Jesus prayed for unity in the church in John 17. Lord, we thank You for Your prayer for unity to be developed among your believers. Lord, give us an ùunderstanding of Your heartbeat for unity that you prayed for as we read your intercessory prayer that reaches to our present day. Help us to receive the unity you desire among us. “That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us so "That the world may believe that thou hast sent me” (John 17:21).

The Church began in a spirit of unity in Acts 2:1, “…they were all with one accord in one place.” Lord, we pray that You would bind us together in unity as we gather together to pray. Lord, You have promised a latter day outpouring of the Holy Ghost. We want to have unity such as was experienced on the Day of Pentecost. As we unite together in prayer, we ask that the Holy Ghost will be poured out on all flesh.

Lord, grant that we would have a love for our brothers and sisters that compares to Philemon’s love toward Jesus and for all saints. Paul wrote the following in Philemon verses 4-7, “I thank my God always when I remember you in my prayers, because I hear of your love and of the faith that you have toward the Lord Jesus and for all the saints, and I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ. For I have derived much joy and comfort from your love, my brother, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you.” (ESV) When we have a steadfast love for one another we will have unity.
