“making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”
Ephesians 4:3 (NRSV)
Gracious God, pour out your Spirit upon our divided nation and world. As we are led by your Spirit, may we work to bind and to heal the divide and bring unity and peace to all nations. Amen.
-Rev. Phil Tom, Executive Director, International Council of Community Churches
We call on you now to join us in “40 Days of Prayer to Transform: A Journey to Newness.” Beginning December 12 and moving daily through January 20, members of the National Council of Churches and all communion partners will join in praying for hope, unity, and healing. During this Advent/Christmas season and into the New Year we put our hope in the ability and desire of God, through Jesus Christ, to heal and transform hearts and minds. We look for the Holy Spirit to breathe God’s newness into individual lives, faith communities, the soul of our nation, indeed, the whole world.
