THEME: POWER OF UNITY
2 Chronicles 30:12 NIV
“Also in Judah the hand of God was on the people to give them unity of mind to carry out what the king and his officials had ordered, following the word of the Lord.”
-King Hezekiah wrote to all Israel and Judah to observe the Passover feast as they had not done it for a long time in the prescribed manner. The priests had not consecrated themselves and the people had not gathered in Jerusalem to offer an atonement for their sins. This matter pleased the king and all the people who united as one in worship. King Hezekiah exhorted them to return to their God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Israel to return to God and He will be merciful to them, and deliver them from their enemies. He called them to come into God’s sanctuary with repentance and they will be sanctified forever. James 4:8 tells us, “draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” Unity of believers brings forth fruit for whenever two or three are gathered in God’s name, He is there with them.
We come to You Lord with sincere repentance that You may forgive us and wash us with Your precious blood. We come to Your throne of grace with boldness that we may find mercy and grace to help us during our time of need. We unite in prayer and praise knowing that You are in us and with us Holy Spirit. We seek Your grace in our lives, families, work, businesses, society, callings and gifting, churches and in our nation. We seek Your presence Lord everyday, all the time that You may go before us and make every crooked path straight. May You level the mountains for us and break every chain that may come to hinder our progress. May You protect us from all evil, provide for our every need, sustain us with Your dew of heaven, guide us with the Light of Your word, preserve us with Your fresh anointing and cloth us with Your salvation. Only You are our God, we bless Your holy name. Only You deserve our worship. Our Father who art in heaven; hallowed be Your name; Your Kingdom come; Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptations but deliver us from evil; for thine is the Kingdom the power and the glory; forever and ever. Amen
