THEME: POWER OF UNITY
“But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And the Lord said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.”
-The descendants of Noah quickly reverted back to their pagan ways and decided to build a tower in Babel. Babel in Hebrew in written as balal which means confused. God decided to confuse their language and scatter them as their motive was filled with pride and destructive in His eyes. God intends that our unity is progressive rather than destructive. Matthew 3:8 says that, we should produce fruit worthy of repentance. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 reveals that, two are better than one. In work and business, when united we produce better returns for their labor. In marriage two can keep warm together. And if either of them falls down, one can help the other up. Therefore, a cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Therefore, when Christ is at the center of all our relationships, our bonds are established by Him and through Him.
Dear Almighty Father we come before You today with thanksgiving in our hearts. We praise You for who You are and what You have done unto us. We count our blessings and name them one by one. Thank You for making us see this day in Your perfect peace that surpasses all understanding. We humbly ask You to heal all those who are sick and suffering, for by Your stripes we are healed. Bind us together Lord with codes of love that cannot be broken. Unite us together merciful Savior in our homes, marriages, businesses, society, nation and nations of the world, so that whatever we plan to do may not hinders. May all our plans and intentions reflect You dear Jesus. Bless the work of our hands and make us fruitful. Bless our marriages and grant us favor dear Jesus. We commit all our school going children under Your care dear Jesus, may You take control of their lives, understanding, morality, spirituality, their future and all that pertains to them. May You help them to focus on their studies and not be led away by peer influence. Deliver all our children from drug abuse, gaysm and lesbianism, premarital sex, pornography and masturbation, and lead them in Your way of salvation. Teach them to put You first in their lives and all that they do. May Your word be established in their hearts that they may never depart from You. Bless all our children dear Jesus and may Your will be done in their lives. Provide for all their parents school fees and all the required incidentals. May You unite all the parents and children with strong bonds of love that cannot be broken. We pray for all the broken families that You may re-unite them through Your grace. May Your mercy and love reach all the children living in the street that some may go back to school, others may find rehabilitation centers, others may get meaningful employment and families according to each ones need. Let all the children come to You dear Master. May You use us Holy Spirit to positively impact the widows, orphans and needy in the society for the glory and honor of Your name. We pray this believing and trusting in Jesus name. Amen
