For the Unity of The United Methodist Church: Healing God, We believe that in Christ Jesus, you have and still are tearing down the dividing walls of our hostility. Look upon your church called United Methodist with mercy, compassion and forgiveness. You alone are our peace and our hope. Make us one in glorifying you, in proclaiming your name throughout the cosmos and in extending your mission of new creation everywhere. Amen.

For the Unity of the Church: Gift giving God, Open us to receive, relish and luxuriate in the gift of unity. We confess that we have not always been thankful recipients of your generosity. Deliver us from our sectarian ways born in idolatry and nurtured in hubris. Generate in us a yearning to live Your Oneness, that we be one, so that the world might believe. We pray in the name of our savior Jesus, who was and is onewith you. Amen.
1 Amen

For the Mission of the Church: Missionary God, You relentlessly pursue us for relationship. You unceasingly love us. Send us with faith, courage and compassion into the world as both sign and invitation of the transforming relationship available to all through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

For the Bishops of the Church: O God, Bishop of our souls, we pray today for the bishops of The United Methodist Church. They are charged to lead, model and serve. Give them each and all the heart of a shepherd, the courage of a prophet and the zeal of an evangelist. Strengthen their arms that they might hold the whole, and so equip your church to “serve the present age.” Amen.

For the members of The Commission On A Way Forward: Gracious God, We give you thanks for these thy servants who seek to serve us all through this labor of study, prayer, discernment and design. Help them one and all to see each other, the church and the world you love so much. Give them patience, wisdom, insight and creativity to see what has not yet been. We pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Heavenly Father, I beseech thee of the mighty goodness and wisdom to make bold those Children of God whom You've called to serve You in Truth to stand up for Your Righteousness, that Biblical obedience defeat political correctness, and all "houses" decide to "...serve the Lord" as Joshua 24:15 tells us to. Let THY will be done, and THINE alone. In Jesus name, AMEN

My father, Samuel Benson, will be declared innocent or guilty for alleged sexual assault on Monday, August 14 at Cameron Court House in Brownsville, Texas. It starts at 9AM on the 3rd floor. My entire family are paramedics and we went to provide aid to a concert. A woman is trying to send my father to jail in order to sue him, our ambulance company, and the concert owners. My father is innocent because I was on the phone with him during the time of the alleged assault. May the truth shine.
1 Amen

Oh, Lord in your mercy, may the church be held together with your love. May Your will prevail, remind us we are all your children and called to love each other. How saddened you must be for your children talking about division instead of unity. Please help us center our eyes on Christ and see all the ministry done in in His name when we work together. May we work for the kingdom not ourselves. Lord, I ask that you bind up the hate, and the evil, especially at GC. In Jesus name.
