  1. Pray that God’s people would speak the truth in love one to another, as members of one another. (Ephesians 4.15-16; 25)

  8. Pray that the Church would be a place where the forgiveness of Christ is taught, and then put into action by the people of
    God as they forgive one another, with humility, grace, and kindness, without grudging. (Luke 17.1-5)
  9. Pray that the Lord would help his people to maintain a good example before one another in holiness, diligence, love,
