Heavenly Father, we come before you to magnify and glorify your name. We, as the body of Christ, give you all the praise and honour you deserve. Help us all to unite and and pray together as a congregation, for we know where two or more are gathered in your name, you are with us, Oh Lord.
Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them.
Rom 15:5,6 Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be like-minded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: That you may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Bless us, Oh Divine Father, to find unity with each other, to work together to deliver your word. For we know man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
May we be a blessing to others, as we strive to be more like Jesus, Oh Loving Father; kind, caring, compassionate, loving, giving, forgiving and humble.
Eph 4:25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
Oh Lord, as we work together to build your empire, let us be the light that leads the world to you. God, teach us to be good role models to the people around us, so that when they see you and your love within us, they would want to know you more and more.
Grant us the patience to work together. Bring us all together as a family. Let us work together with understanding and compassion in our hearts. Let us not be rude or arrogant towards one another, as we light the way to your heavenly kingdom.

Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them.
Eph 4:31, 32 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
We declare in the name of Jesus and according to the power of God at work in us, that we are of one and the same mind (united in spirit), sympathizing (with one another), loving (each the other as brethren of one household), compassionate and courteous – tenderhearted and humble-minded.
We never return evil for evil or insult for insult, scolding, tongue lashing, berating. But, on the contrary, blessing, praying for their welfare, joy, and protection and truly pitying and loving one another.
For we know that to this we have been called, that we may ourselves inherit blessings from God, obtain blessings as heirs, bringing welfare and joy and protection.
In Jesus’ most Holy and Precious name, AMEN!!

Lord, in this prayer for unity, we ask you to help us take care and nurture your body, guarding the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace by which the members of the body are united. May peace and harmony make and keep things safe and prosperous, until we all come into the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God. Fill us with the presence, power and riches of Christ Jesus.
Give us the sword of the Spirit. Let it come forth at the right time for it will penetrate even to the dividing of the soul and spirit, joints and marrow; and it will judge the thoughts and attitudes of our hearts. Help us abide in your love so you may remain in us. Like a branch cannot bear fruit by itself, we long to remain in you, so that we may bear much fruit.
Now, as we have accepted Jesus as our Lord, help us to continue to live in obedience to Him. Let our roots grow down into You and draw up nourishment from you so that we will grow in faith, strong and vigorous in the truth we are taught. Let our spiritual life glorify you though done in secret. Draw us to you through creating in us a hunger to spend time in prayer and the study of your word. In prayer for unity of worship and meditation, I ask that you create disciplines that grow deep like the roots of the great sequoia tree.
Save those whom feel the waters have come up to their neck and feel they are sinking in the mire. Be a strong fortress to them when they cannot get a foothold, and the flood sweeps over them. Come to them when they are tired of crying out for you and when their enemies number more than the hairs on their head. Be their shield when their hated without cause and are attacked with lies.
I ask that we be used as instruments of righteousness. Let us die to ourselves that we may bear fruit in your name. Let us grow in love toward one another who are your body. We recognize that the body is a unit though comprised of many parts. You have arranged your parts in the body, every one of them, just as you wanted them to be. We ask that you help us in our prayer for unity to treat each part with love and honor, esteeming them above ourselves.
We recognize that those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But you, oh God have combined the members of the body, and you have given greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.
We are the body of Christ, and each one of us is a part of it. We love you, therefore we will love one another. We seek to show love to the world to draw them to your redemptive love. Help us to love one another, because Lord if I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Help us to be imitators of God, as dearly loved children and help us to live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. But among us let there not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Let there not be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather let us bring thanksgiving. Orchestrate your body to move in unity and pursue the truth in love. May all of us work together in perfect harmony so that, like a clock has many gears we all work prayerfully in unity moving forward in perfect timing from the one true power source.
Lord like Nehemiah we see the trouble the church is in. We see how it lies in ruins. Help us to rebuild the walls so that we may no longer be defeated. You have put your hand upon us to do this good work. So let us rise up and build. Strengthen us for this work. Though we may be criticized for what you have commanded us to do, we will prosper in this work because you are the master builder the rebuilder of broken walls and lives.

“UNIFIED HOUR’S OF PRAYER!”
12:00PM & 9:00PM EST.
Prayer and Bible Study are equally important, both are extremely important part’s of our relationship with God! I thank and praise God every day for all the many blessing’s in which he bestows upon us. When the temporal things of this world are pulling us away from God, we can always through prayer, meditation, and Gods word (truth) keep ourselves from straying off the path God has set for each of us who seek his will.
1 Thessalonians 5:16 Rejoice evermore. 17Pray without ceasing. 18In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 19Quench not the Spirit.
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
We are having an hour of prayer twice a day. The hour’s are everyday at 12PM & 9PM EST. At these times we would appreciate all who will & can to start praying when the clock strikes the hour. Please try your best to participate in both hour’s of prayer, but if you cannot join in both, please try to participate in one of the two. Please don’t participate if you cannot do so in a completely safe environment! Please remember that at these times we all have the opportunity to be of one spiritual mind & accord. We will unify the spirit in the bond of peace! This will be a blessing for all who participate and even those who cannot!
Ephesians 4:3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
Acts 2:46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47Praising God, and having favour with all the people.
Acts 3:1 Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.
Even though in this world the church is made up of many different denominations, we are all one body (church) of Jesus Christ our Lord! I humbly ask that each church or person that reads this letter participate in these “UNIFIED HOUR’S OF PRAYER!”. The Lord has put this on my heart in a very strong way, through prayer, bible study, and meditation.
Romans 12: 4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: 5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
With all the Love God has given me that is not of myself but a gift from God, I pray you all Gods many Blessings! One Faith! One Spirit! One Mind! On Accord! Glory to God!
Please feel free to share this with your Church leaders, friends, family, and others!

Even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ. – 1 Corinthians 12:12
As believers and followers of Jesus Christ our Lord, our spiritual well-being depends on our connection with Christ through His body. In 1 Corinthians 12, the word body appears 18 times. Paul’s conclusion in this chapter is that we must be connected to each other in order to be what God wants us to be.
In the New Testament, the human body became the primary picture of the church body. At the end of verse 12 Paul wrote, “So also is Christ.” What the human body is to us, so also is Christ’s body. There are many different parts doing many different things, but one unit. The reason our physical body is one is that all the parts are connected. If we cut off a finger, the finger dies. If we want it to function, we must get it reconnected quickly. Connection is absolutely necessary for life.
Christ’s body, the church, is not an organization, but an organism. We can create a robot and have organization. The parts connect to each other so that it works. But the problem with the robot is that it has no life. It is organizationally connected, but it’s not a living being. A human body, in contrast, has organization that makes it function, but it also is an organism. It’s a living, breathing life. Connection in the body is necessary for function and for life, and it is essential if we are to leave a lasting impact and impression on our society and in our world.
