Week of Prayer for Christian Unity - Day 8

 cf. Google Images

     DAY 8 Theme: United in the Reign of Christ. Readings: 1 CHronicles 29: 10-13 It is your hand to make great and to give strength to all. Psalm 21: 1-7 You set a crown of fine gold on his head. Revelation 3: 19b-22 To the one who conquers I will give a place with Me on My throne. John 12: 23-26 Whoever serves me the Father will honour.
     Prayer: Almighty God, Ruler of All, teach us to contemplate the mystery of Your glory. Grant that we may accept Your gifts with humility and respect each person's dignity. May Your Holy Spirit strengthen us for the spiritual battles which lie ahead, so that united in Christ we may reign with Him in glory. Grant this through him who humbled himself and was exhalted, who lives with You and the Holy Spirit, for ever and ever. Amen.
     Questions for reflection: 1. In what ways do false humility and a desire for earthly glory manifest themselves in our lives? 2. How do we express together our faith in the Reign of Christ? 3. How do we live out our hope in the coming Kingdom of God?
