“If Two of You Agree”
Keep us aware, O Lord, of the importance of community and fellowship in your Church.
Keep us aware, O Lord, of the responsibility that we have to one another and of the accountability that we are to have to one another.
Keep us aware, O Lord, of the power that is present through you in the Christian community—power to offer forgiveness, power to offer restoration, power to offer discipline, power to offer acceptance, and power to offer grace.
Keep us aware, O Lord, that we truly are the Body of Christ and that you truly are present among us, helping us to help each other grow into the people that we can and should be.
“Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, truly I tell you, if two of you agree on earth about anything you ask, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.”(Matthew 18:18-20)
