Day 7: Unity

My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also. for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one — I in them and you in me– so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you have sent me and loved them eve as you have loved me. — John 17:20-23

Love is the sign of our faith. Unity is the motif of our spirituality. As the Father and the Son are one, so must we be. Bitterness and resentment should have no place in our lives. Unforgiveness and prejudice should find no home in our community. Our lives and our prayers should be littered with concern for others and care for those around us.

Talk with God

Ask.
