Praying from Romans 12:5. Themes: Unity, Community, Interdependence.

Dear Lord,

We come before you as many, but we know that in Christ, we are one body. We submit ourselves to you and to one another, recognizing that we are all members of the same body. Help us to work together in unity, using our unique gifts and talents to serve you and build up your kingdom.

We claim the promise that we are individually members of one another. May we always remember that we are not alone, but part of a larger community of believers. Help us to support and encourage one another, to bear each other’s burdens, and to rejoice in each other’s victories.

Thank you for the privilege of being part of your body. May we always honor you in our thoughts, words, and actions, and may we bring glory to your name through our unity and love for one another.

In Jesus’ name we pray,


Verse: so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another,
Romans 12:5

This is a Both. The command is to be united as one body in Christ and to recognize that we are all members of one another. The promise is that through this unity, we can experience the fullness of Christ’s love and grace.
