Separated By Division By Brenda Drake

Churches need to join together in this troubled world, working in one accord to do the work set before us. We have no right to run down each other because of different doctrines, or be concerned how we differ in how we praise, worship or serve the Lord. We need to concentrate on all the things we agree on and work together to defeat the enemy that is always at work to tear us apart and get us off course. The bible says, they will know we are Christians by our love. Jesus went so far as to say we are to love our enemy, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. How much more should we love, and join together with those that are on the same team, When truly a Christ follower even in many denominations we are one body, one Church, with Jesus our Lord as the head.

Separated by Division

Brothers and sisters should not be separated with divisions.
We are all healed Lord with Your provision.
Speak in the dark hours to each soul,
Teach Your ways; make us whole.
Father I know there are hurts that need to be addressed,
And deep wounds and bitterness’s,
And dark things that haunt them in the night;
I believe you can make things turn out right.
Father soften hard hearts so they can feel again.
And help harden hearts against sin.
Only the Holy Spirit can this work in us do.
So I bring the Churches in prayer to You.
Give us a glimpse of what really matters in life,
So we clearly can see the foolishness that causes strife.
Help us to recognize the subtleness of pride’s touch.
So we can repent, learn to forgive again, to show to the world Your love.
I pray for harmony and peace to sisters and brothers.
So we will have true fellowship with one another.
I will truly try to lay this all in Your care,
And watch faithfully for answered prayers.

Matthew 12:25
And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
