As the Easter season draws to a close, we are called to unity in today’s focus scripture. Jesus prays for his disciples – the ones who would lead the early church – “so that they may be one.” Unity is tough. We might not always agree and maybe more often then not, we disagree about things in the life of the church. But Jesus’ prayer for the disciples is one we can pray today. We ask that God be glorified in all of our actions and that we might become one in glorifying God.
This week – following Jesus’ example, spend more time in prayer. Set aside at least 15 minutes each day for prayer. You might try meditative prayer or focus on a theme for your prayer time – for example, Christian unity, your local church community, the global Christian church…
