Pray for the churches in our communities.

John 17:20-21
(Jesus is praying)​ ​“I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, 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.”

Pray for the Christian churches in our community. Ask God that there might be unity among the churches in our area. The above scripture says that the world might know Jesus through our unity. Too often we see other churches as competition rather than colleagues working together for God’s purposes and the advancement of God’s kingdom. There are many churches who are struggling with dwindling attendance and scarce resources. So perhaps pray for a church that is facing struggle or one from a different denomination or a neighboring church serving the same small community where you are located or a church that is reaching a different set of people than your own church.
