Join us in 8 days of prayer for Christian Unity, using resources graciously provided by
The Canadian Council of Churches.
Isaiah 1:12-18. Learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan; plead for the widow.
Luke 10:25-36. He asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbour?”
A lawyer asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbour?” Jesus’ response asks us to see beyond the divisions of religion, tribe and nationality to recognise our neighbour in need. Christians likewise must see beyond these divides and the divisions within the Christian family to recognise and love our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Lord, you called your people from slavery into freedom.
Give us strength and courage to seek out those who are standing in need of justice. Allow us to see this need and provide help, and through your Holy Spirit gather us into the one fold of Jesus Christ, our Shepherd.
