Praise God for bringing us together and uniting us as a faith family. Pray for Him to grow us in our unity and diversity to better reflect our neighborhood, city, and world. Ask Him to guide us all in discovering how to use the gifts He’s given us to build up His church and kingdom. Pray for God to use us all to help one another grow in Jesus together.
This week we are praying for racial reconciliation and unity in the Body of Christ, in our city, and in our nation. We are particularly praying that we, as followers of Jesus, will be useful instruments in the Redeemer’s Hand pursuing unity in His Body and in our city as He reconciles all things in Christ (Colossians 1:19-20; Ephesians 2: 14-16). We are also praying for New Rising Star Missionary Baptist Church and Pastor Thomas Beavers.
DAY 1: Pray for all believers across Birmingham to pursue unity with believers of other ethnicities, showing love, grace, forgiveness, compassion, and humility in a way that displays Christ’s character to our city.
