John 17:20–23 (CSB) — 20 “I pray not only for these, but also for those who believe in me through their word. 21 May they all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us, so that the world may believe you sent me. 22 I have given them the glory you have given me, so that they may be one as we are one. 23 I am in them and you are in me, so that they may be made completely one, that the world may know you have sent me and have loved them as you have loved me.
LORD have mercy on us! Help us! We are desperate for you to fix us because we have gotten ourselves in a mess, and we can’t see the way out. Every step we take is met with “controversy” and “quarreling”; O the unbearable sin of quarreling and strife! Forgive us and wash us clean! Make us one again!
I pray in Jesus’ name, amen!
