Make us one.

Make us one.

Make us one undivided body.

Lord, we need Your help! Our country is divided along racial lines now more than it has been in a long time. God, help the Church to see the truth that we are from one race – the human race. Lord, help the Church to have Your perspective – the kingdom perspective. Lord, help the Church to believe, affirm, and demonstrate the truth that there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism. Lord, help the Church believe, affirm, and demonstrate that the body of Christ is not divided by race, sex, or class, but that we are united by a faith-based relationship with Jesus Christ.

Lord, let the country see the love we Christians have for one another so that they may know that we are Your followers. Lord, let the country see the forgiveness we display towards one another so that they may see grace and mercy on display. Lord, let the country see the racial reconciliation which occurs within the Church so that they may know that unity is within our reach. Jesus, let the church lift You up so that You may draw the country back to God.

Make us one.

Make us one.

For the sake of Your name, make us one.

In Jesus’s name, we pray …
