Today, let’s come together to pray for each other

Trees in front of mountains

“Take heart, I have overcome the world.”

Immediately after Jesus spoke those words, He prayed for the future Church to “be united,” just as He and the Father were, that way the world would know Him.

What is unity?

Unity means to be joined in purpose and passion, and involves exchanging our will for Christ’s will. Even though unity is difficult, Jesus seemed to believe it was necessary if the world was going to know Him.

When we cultivate unity in the body of Christ, we acknowledge that Jesus is in control and that His grace is sufficient to cover our differences.

Today, let’s seek God’s heart and ask Him to draw His Church together as one, so that the world will believe in the One that God sent to unite us.


Thank You for overcoming the world. Because of that, we can experience unity with You. And because we can be unified with You, we can experience unity with each other.

It’s by You all things are held together. As we seek to center our lives around You, help us to see all the ways You are at work in the world.

Draw us closer to Your heart so that we begin to see each other the way You see us. Would that encourage us to look out not only for our own interests, but also for the interests of others.

We want Your kingdom to come on earth as it is in heaven, so unite us in purpose so that nothing keeps people searching for You from believing in You. May we experience such perfect unity that the world will know that You sent us and that You love them unconditionally.

Come, Lord Jesus, and do in our lives what only You can do.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

What is Worship by Time of Grace


Worship is Praying

God realizes that he has you at a bit of a disadvantage. He can see you, but you can’t see him. He can hear you plainly and directly, but you can hear him only indirectly. He’s aware of the stress that places on you, and he makes allowances for it.

You honor him when you pray. Christian prayers acknowledge God as omnipresent, caring, omniscient, and all-powerful. Prayer accepts…

Start Plan


God, I know that You are able to handle my every need, so please give me the courage to bring all my struggles before You. Stir in my heart a desire to seek You first above all else, because You are the One who cares for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

What’s your normal look like?

Embrace a better normal.

Sometimes, change is uncomfortable. Sometimes, a “new normal” doesn’t feel normal.

So how do we joyfully embrace what God is doing when we can’t see all the details? How do we approach each day with courage and kindness when what’s happening around us may feel too hard to handle?

This month, let’s discover how to create a better normal by pressing into truths found in God’s Word.

Rediscover your purpose.

What are you called to?

When God created you, He called you by name. You were made in His image on purpose, for a purpose: to reflect God’s love to a hurting world.

Anyone who knows God is called by Him, but calling looks different for each of us and can be hard to figure out. So, how do you discover and live out your calling?

Start by spending a few minutes asking God to reveal His plans for you, then, start one of these Plans.
