An Invitation to Monthly Prayer for Christian Unity
Are you being called by the Spirit to pray regularly for Christian Unity?
Having preached today at Virginia Theological Seminary [notes to be posted later] on Christian Unity, I am conscious of the need to pray for Unity on a more regular basis.
In fact, for the last few weeks I have been wondering if I should propose that we form a group(s) in the Consortium of students, faculty, administrators, Board and friends [anyone who feels called by the Spirit] to pray once a month.
My ideas are just forming–but some colleagues whom I greatly respect affirm the inspiration.
I am thinking of:
- a monthly meeting
- no more than an hour
- with sharing of intentions
- with time for silent prayer
- with a short time for bible sharing/communal prayer [e.g. morning prayer]
- with an initial commitment for March, April and May.
