Unity was the theme of our most recent National Day of Prayer. Based on Ephesians 4:3, “Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace,” the theme was timely as tens of thousands of prayer gatherings prayed for racial, political, denominational, generational, and familial unity. That theme was powerful and timely because of the divisiveness and disunity in all those areas today in the United States. We need a great move of God to bring us back to unity! There is, however, an extremely important side benefit to our prayers for unity and a reason to keep unity at the forefront of your prayers. In fact, I suspect that the Apostle Paul did not see it as a side benefit at all, but the primary reason to pray for unity . . . and why he challenged the Ephesian believers to make every effort to live in unity.
