Praying for Christian Unity

Yesterday was the start of The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, which has been observed by many denominations around the world since 1908. Our “Ministers Together” group in the area meets once a month to pray for our churches’ mission and ministry and is made up of ministers from Roman Catholic, Baptist, Church of England, Methodist and URC churches. Denham Parish Church is part of this group. In the past we have organised outreach events, training and joint worship services.

Please pray that we would continue to grow in unity inspired by Jesus, the living Word of God.

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14

“My prayer is not for them [my disciples] alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” Jesus in John 17:20–23
