God, I pray for unity in the Holy Spirit and as it is written; we should make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. We should be completely humble and gentle, be patient, bearing with one another in love because it is time we realised we need to live for one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who IS over all and through all in this world'. Help us, Lord say a meaningful ' sorry' to those we have hurt and not to just repeating it over and over, time and time again as we do when we are left to our own sinful nature and to realise that You see and hear all of this and long for us to stop saying and doing the things that we have done wrongly. They grieve the Holy Spirit and harm others and place a barrier to receiving all that God wants to share with us. Amen.
