Pray for unity


For a spirit of collegiality and teamwork for members of the cabinet as they partner together to do the best for the American people
So all the men of Israel got together and united as one man against the city.
—Judges 20:11

Precious Lord, Scripture tells us that when the Israelites were faced with the great challenge of coming against the atrocities of the men of Gibeah, they did so in utter unity, as one man. They were committed to fight together for a just cause, an example to us today of the strength of unity. Thank You, O God, for this reminder.

As we intercede for President Obama’s cabinet, we also know that political partisanship can so easily undermine unity, sapping our nation’s leaders of the collective strength. So Lord, we pray that You would intervene mightily, and bring teamwork and togetherness to the men and women appointed to serve our president. Enable them, Lord, to accomplish great things for the betterment of our country as they unite as one. In Your name, amen.
