Week of Prayer for
Christian Unity

Prayer resources offered by the churches of Latvia.

Theme for the Day:
A PRIESTLY PEOPLE CALLED TO PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL

Scripture Readings:

Genesis 17:1-8 – Your name shall be Abraham, for I have made you the ancestor of a multitude of nations.
Psalm 145:8-12 – God is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
Romans 10:14-15 – And how are they to believe in one of whom they have never heard?
Matthew 13:3-9 – Other seeds fell on good soil and brought forth grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

Questions:

  1. What personal ambitions, competitive spirits, false assumptions about other Christians, and resentments obscure our proclamation of the Gospel?
  2. Who hears a life-giving word from us?

School Cycle of Prayer:

We pray today for the Family Therapy Theory class taught by Rebecca Cobb; Colette Casavant, staff; Laura Begun and Beimnet Bekele, students.

Prayer:

Lord Jesus, you said that everyone will know that we are your disciples if there is love among us. Strengthened by your grace, may we work tirelessly for the visible unity of your Church, so that the Good News that we are called to proclaim will be seen in all our words and deeds. Amen.
