Day 24 – Unity and Protection
Father, I thank you for sending Your son Jesus to not just die for me, but to die as me. I thank you that with Jesus’s death and resurrection, I have been forgiven, filled with Your Holy Spirit, and made one with You. Father, I ask that my family and I dwell as one in complete unity. We may not agree upon everything, but I thank you, Father, that our hearts are united and we each seek the good of the other. We are not of the world but while we are in this world, protect us from the evil one. Sanctify us by Your truth. Let us go out into this world as ambassadors of Christ, equipped with every Spiritual gift and utilizing the Gifts of the Spirit to demonstrate your love, your goodness and your faithfulness.
I am seated in Christ in heavenly places.
I am protected from the evil one.
In my family, we seek the good of the other.
As I go out into this world, I will lay hands on the sick and they shall recover and people will be set free from demonic oppression.
“I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of Your name, the name You gave me, so that they may be one as we are one.
“I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. I have given them Your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world, but that you protect them from the evil one.
Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth. As You sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.” John 17:11, 13-15, 17-19 NIV
