Father, We affirm what David says here, that it is good and pleasant when brothers live together in unity. We believe that where there is unity among brothers, there you bestow your blessing and command it to be manifest, and there you release life forevermore. And so I pray for myself and for ______________________, that we all will be diligent to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. So far as it depends upon us, may we be at peace with everyone. We pray that the members of your church will live together in unity, and that there will be unity among all the churches in our city and nation that make up the body of Christ. May your blessing rest upon us and your life be released within us. Our nation is much divided, and so we pray that you will work among us so that our divisions may be overcome and we may again be one people. Teach us as a nation how good and pleasant it is for us to dwell in unity, and remind us that where there is unity, there you command your blessing to be released. Prompt us to praise you and lift up our hands to you in your sanctuary. We ask you, the Maker of heaven and earth, to bless us from Zion in the name of Jesus. Amen.
