Week of Prayer for
Christian Unity

Prayer resources offered by the churches of Latvia.

Theme for the Day:
THE WITNESS OF FELLOWSHIP

Scripture Readings:

Jeremiah 31:10-13 – They shall come and sing aloud on the height of Zion.
Psalm 122 – Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you.
1 John 4:16b-21 – Those who say, “I love God,” and hate their brothers or sisters are liars.
John 17:20-23 – That they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me.

Questions:

  1. How do we regard Christians of other churches and are we prepared to ask forgiveness for prejudice towards them?
  2. What can each of us do to decrease division amongst Christians?

School Cycle of Prayer:

We pray today for the Doctoral Project Seminar class taught by Sharon Callahan; Mark Taylor, faculty; Barbara Bauml and Jo Beecher, students.

Prayer:

Lord Jesus, who prayed that we might all be one, we pray to you for the unity of Christians according to your will, according to your means. May your Spirit enable us to experience the suffering caused by division, to see our sin and to hope beyond all hope. Amen.
