God, our Father, we gather together because You have made us one body, which is knit together as one by the Holy Spirit. May our unity be preserved and made stronger because of our common faith in the risen Savior. Help us to be forgiving to one another, to be teachable, and to desire the good of the congregation. Grant that Scripture would have the final word and help us each to rightly discern the truth from error. We pray for Your wisdom, in Jesus’s name. Amen.
