Powerful Daily Prayers – Need for Interdependence
Dear Father, who wills our interdependence,
Help me not to think more highly of myself than I ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, according to the measure of faith which you have assigned me.
I know that I am but one member in the body of Christ, and while important, no more important than any other.
For as in one body, we have many members, and all members do not have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of each other.
Help me to understand and practice the interdependence necessary for the healthy functioning of the body of Christ. May each member be in sympathetic union with all others.
In the name of Jesus, who shares all spiritual blessings with us, we ask for a growing love among all your people. Amen.
