Prayer

At 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. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me (John 17:21; NLT).

 

Lord,
To be at one with you,
And with all people:
That’s what I seek.

To love you,
And to love all people:
That’s what I seek.

To serve you,
And to serve all people:
That’s what I seek.

Please help me, Lord,
Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.

Nothing to fear

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me (Psalm 23:4; KJV).

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; NIV).


Lord,
When we face everything
With you,
We have nothing left
To fear
In life or death.

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 (John 17:21; NLT).

 

Lord,
To love you
Is to love all people;
And to love all people
Is to love you.

To serve you
Is to serve all people;
And to serve all people
Is to serve you.

To be one with you

You are the gift

Jesus replied, “If only you knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water” (John 4:10; NLT).

 

Lord,
You are the gift
That gives forever;
You are the light
That always shines.

You are the truth
That lasts forever;
You are the fire
That always burns.

You are the love
That lives forever;
You are the peace
That always reigns.

Us and them

Happy Christmas to every reader, with love from Ruth xxxxx

There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28; NIV).

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).

Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17; NIV).

 

Lord God,
There is
No us and them,
No he and she,
No you and I –

For all of us
Are one with you,
And you are one
With us.
