When It Is This Simple, Psalm 133:1


How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!

Psalm 133:1, NIV

Father, we are so thankful for the love that you shower us with.  Help us to be givers of love, peace, compassion, and mercy.  Let us love, as we have been loved.  Forgive, as we have been forgiven.  Reconciled unto each other, and unto you, joining hands as a family of adopted strangers brought into Kingdom.  Let us seek peace, unity, and community.  Let the Holy Spirit convict our hearts over the sin that stains our love, so that our eyes are opened to our own iniquities and that repentance is on our tongue.  Diminish pride, let us be humble before one another, offering our sincerest apologies and accepting others with grace.  Let peace and love be the banner we wave during such troubled times.  In Christ we pray, Amen.
