REPENTING FOR THE DIVISION IN THE CHURCH

Our Father in heaven, holy is Your name. We pray for Your will to be done on earth even as it is in heaven. John saw a great multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language (see Rev. 7:9). Father, I ask You to forgive us, the people who are called by Your name, for tolerating prejudice toward one another. We raise up the banner of love and take our stand against the accuser, the father of lies who uses racism and the pain of the past to separate us from unity. We are a people whose identity is in Christ, and by the power of the Holy Spirit we will walk together clothed in the armor of God. We declare that we are strong in the Lord and the power of His might. Taking unto ourselves the whole armor of God, we are able to stand against the schemes of the devil and declare that we are one—red and yellow, black and white—we are one!

In the name of Jesus, I bind my mind, will, attitudes, and emotions to the blood of Jesus, the control of the Holy Spirit, and the love of God. With the authority of Jesus, I loose, smash, and cast down every argument and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. I bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

Father, thank You that the truth makes us free from the influence of public opinion. The Holy Spirit has come upon us and lives in us enabling us to live out our glorious, Christ-originated faith. Father forgive us for segregating ourselves by color, by a measure of wealth or intellect. We are one blood, redeemed by the blood of the Lamb who was slain before the foundation of the world. We are brand new creations, baptized into Christ, and we have put on the family likeness of Christ. We rise and call for an end to division and segregation in our family—no division between Jew and Gentile, slave and free, male and female, white and black. Among us we are all equal—we are all in a common relationship with Jesus Christ. The kingdom of faith is now our home country, and we are no longer strangers or outsiders. We belong here, raised up together, seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus far above prejudice and every name that would divide us, in the name of Jesus.

  1. Amen and thank You Lord for Your praying people. I ask for a continuous, true spirit of repentance upon us Your children

  2. As our Heavenly Father looks down upon those who have received His Son Jesus Christ, He is saddened for any divisive ways that occur in His Churches. The only solution to this spiritual problem is repentance. Following repentance, His people must walk in His Spirit. One vital task that true Christians have is that of demonstrating love toward every person that he meets, and this can only be done when the Christian draws the love from Jesus.

  3. Thank you, Sovereign Father, for beautiful use of Your Word of Power (Sword of the Spirit)to pray repentance, we so need, and affirmations back to You. Let us Your Body unite to repent (confess and turn from)injustice so You can take Your rightful place in our hearts, our worship and our land. Genesis 4:10-11 “…your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground….” Have mercy on our shame and restore us to the intimate harmony with You created in Eden. Let the pastors take courage to lead in the Truth of Your Word. All blessing and honor be to you.

  4. WoW Thank You Lord Jesus there are still men & women holding true to prayer, willing to bow to the importance that You placed upon being aware of You ever presence & power over our lives. Thank you IFA

  5. Long overdue! Praise God for repentance! Now let’s get busy working together sheild to sheild with God as our rearward, moving forward into battle, tearing the enemies kingdom down. In Jesus Mighty Name!!!

  6. As Pentecost Sunday approaches, we unite with this prayer of unity. As we are one in mind and spirit, we pray for our Father’s approval as He sends fresh fire from above to burn away the chaff of division and renews His Church to be the light of the world. Come, Holy Spirit, fill us and make us Your witnesses in all the world. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
