Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God.” For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. (Revelation 19:10 ESV)
Father, send your Holy Spirit to bear witness to Jesus, even through our spiritually blinded clergy and through our denominational rivalries and strife.
As the High Priest Caiphas prophesied Messiah’s atoning death for our sins, so fill the words of misguided church leaders with testimony to Jesus the way, the truth and the life.
As the Apostle Paul’s ego-driven rivals still spread the Good News of Christ, so let your Word reach those you are saving, even through our broken denominational factions.
We ask this in the only name given for salvation, the name of your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
