United in Purpose

When we’re united,

in purpose in Christ;

Spirit fellowship,

He in us, will rise.

Comfort in His love,

sweet with compassion;

setting self aside,

serving with passion.

Joy is made complete,

when we work as one;

give for His purpose,

not selfishly done.

Consider others,

offer helping hand;

look not for reward,

hope for fellow man.

Look to the model,

Jesus gave to us;

let His Spirit lead,

all one in purpose.

(Responding to Philippians 2:1-5)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that Your plans and purposes for us are not as islands, but as part of a body, united in purpose – so that we might strengthen and encourage one another as we seek and serve You with all that we are.  Forgive us for the areas of need that we have neglected, and help us to hear and obey You well.  Unite us as one in purpose in Your power, so that many may come to know the compassion and care that comes closer still, when we have a personal relationship with You, the Redeemer of our soul.  Unite us in Your purpose, I pray.  Amen.
