We are one

I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one – as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one (John 17:21-2; NLT).

God is with us (Isaiah 7:14; NLT).

You are the temple of the living God (Luke 17:21; NKJV).

There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28; NLT).

 

Here I am, Lord God,
And you’re here too –
Although, in fact,
There is no I or you,
For we are one.

Here we are, Lord God,
And you’re here too –
Although, in fact,
There is no we or you,
For we are one.

Here we are, Lord God,
And you’re here too,
Whilst, over there, are those
Who aren’t like us at all –
Although, in fact,
There is no us or them,
For we are one.

One God

I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5; NLT).

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

There is […] one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all (Ephesians 4:4-6; NIV).

I am the Lord, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God (Isaiah 45:5; NIV).

 

Before my birth,
In life,
In death,
And for eternity,
You’re always with me,
Always here within me –
For there is no God but you,
My Lord,
And holy is your name.

Everyone

God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them (1 John 4:16; NLT).

I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one – as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one (John 17:21-2; NLT).

There is […] one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all (Ephesians 4:4-6; NIV).


Lord God,
We pray for everyone
Throughout the world.

For all of us
Are part of one another,

And all of us
Are part of you, Lord God.

Transformation

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them (1 John 4:16; NIV).

Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think (Romans 12:2. NLT).

He will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit (Ephesians 3:16; NLT).

When I am weak, then I am strong (2 Corinthians 12:10; NLT).

Those who shed tears as they plant will shout for joy when they reap the harvest (Psalm 126:5; NLT).

 

Lord,
By the mysterious action
Of your love,
You slowly help us
To transform our suffering
And weakness
Into patient inner strength,
And even joy!

One God

I am the Lord, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God (Isaiah 45:5; NIV).

There is …one God and Father, who is over all in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

I am the Lord, the God of all the peoples of the world (Jeremiah 32:27; NLT).

 

Lord,
You are light,
And fire,
And love,
And peace.

There is no God but you –
However many names
We give you
Here on earth.
