10 Days of Prayer

2020

Day 2

LIVE IN HARMONY WITH ONE ANOTHER

“Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.” Romans 12:16

Father, your Word is clear – we should not be conceited, we should not be proud and we should not look down on others. Thank you for exhorting us to live in harmony with one another. Lord, we acknowledge that sometimes pride comes before us and we fail to associate with those who are different to us.

Please forgive us, Lord, when we have been like the pharisees and only pretended to care for and love others. Forgive us when we have looked down on those from other cultures or socio-economic groups, those with different education or social status, and those we assume are less informed or experienced than we are. Forgive us for our attitudes that make harmony impossible.

Teach us to seek unity in the body, to associate with the humble and never to think too highly of ourselves. Help us to associate with those who do not look like us, who do not speak our language, and those with whom we may not be comfortable. As the fear of COVID-19 grips many, help us reach out to others and be a force for unity.

Lord, you made us in your image, designed personally by you to bring glory and honour to your name. Please help us see those with whom you want us
to associate.

In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

 

PLEASE PRAY:

East Asia

For at least 200 new workers to be sent from East Asia by 2025 to reach those living and dying without Christ.

For the 200 missionaries already sent from East Asia to grow as disciple-makers who are passionate about producing Christ-like disciples who settle into gospel-centred churches.

For missionaries sent from East Asia to guard their first love for Jesus, to grow in their love and compassion for the lost and to work together with local churches to mobilise many for world missions. May every missionary become a missions mobiliser.

For leaders in this region to understand the times and know what should be done, like the men of Issachar. Pray for the God of peace to equip them in everything good for doing his will. (I Chronicles 12:32, Hebrews 13:20-21)
