In John 17.20-23, we read what Jesus prayed for the church. If this is Jesus’ prayer for us, surely we must fulfill this to be let God lead!
Here is the John 17 prayer:
Lord Jesus, I ask that your followers may all be one. As you are one with the Father, may we also be one in You. May our unity be a witness and cause many people to believe in you. God, draw me closer to You so that I will be closer to my sisters and brothers. May we become completely one, so that the world may know that You are God’s only Son and the Savior. May St James United Methodist Church be one. Show me how I can make this a reality. I surrender my own will to your will… Amen.
