A Prayer for UnityIf I had to say only one thing that could fix all the problems in the church today it is this:
"Go into all the world and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to all creation, he who believes and is immersed (baptized) will be saved." (Mark 16:16 paraphrased). If Christians were doing there first and most important job-- evangelism, then all the problems, devouring one another, unfaithfulness and false teachings would all go away. When you teach others you teach yourselves.
I have this prayer, one that I hope you have too.
I pray that all the Christians throughout the world would get back to the Bible and ONLY the Bible.
I pray that all the Christians would give up all things that they can not find either by commandment or by example in the word of God.
I pray that all the Christians would not justify what they do by any means other than "It is written...".
I pray that all the Christians get back to the love of Jesus and put away the social clubs and church entertainment.
I pray that all the Christians would tear down all the Christian organizations they can not find in the scriptures.
I pray that all the Christian would put away the man-made ordinances or opinions that separate them.
I pray that all the Christians preach the word of God to all creation. (Mark 16:15-16, Matthew 28:19-20.)
In Christ name.
