#GYA Season of Prayer Day 3: One

We’ve all lost friends.

By a thoughtless word, a careless act, or a moment of fury, relationships crumble on our watch. Then, our inability to reconcile offenses can turn what was once a warm interaction into a distant memory.

Our relational strife has also seeped into our congregations. As we know all too well, the history of the global church is fraught with division.

It would not be too bold to believe that Jesus saw this coming. When he prayed for us, he asked that we would be one, just as God is one.


Elementary, singular, and yet miraculously dynamic, this is the God we serve.

As we pray for oneness, we ask for healing in our own congregation.

“I’m praying not only for them But also for those who will believe in me Because of them and their witness about me. The goal is for all of them to become one heart and mind— Just as you, Father, are in me and I in you, So they might be one heart and mind with us. Then the world might believe that you, in fact, sent me. The same glory you gave me, I gave them, So they’ll be as unified and together as we are— I in them and you in me. Then they’ll be mature in this oneness, And give the godless world evidence That you’ve sent me and loved them In the same way you’ve loved me.” –John 17:20-23 [Message]

We pray for reconciliation between neighborhoods, cities, nations, and peoples.

We pray that the stacking of hands for the sake of today’s young people will reflect the vibrant oneness of our triune God.

May we be one in heart and spirit.
