Psalm 133: Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren (put names in here) to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, Running down on the beard, The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the Lord commanded the blessing–Life forevermore.As we speak His Word to Him we are creating a new thing in these relationships; because we are created in His image our words are creative even as His are. He created the world by speaking it into existence. By repeating His Word, we are doing the same thing; we are creating harmony and peace between people who are out of communication. We are speaking it into existence. Watch out! Once is often not enough.
John 15:12 This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.Jesus loved us enough that He gave Himself to come to this world and to live a perfect life. He had to lower himself to do this; we may have to lower ourselves for the sake of harmony but He expects us to adjust our attitudes to do this. He will help us to give of ourselves even as He gave of Himself.
John 17:20 & 21 I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.He is praying to the Father for each and every person who asks the Father to be their new spiritual leader; praying that we live in unity and harmony. As we confess His Word over those who are estranged from us, He can begin to work things out between us. However, we must let go of the issues so that He is free to work it out. If we hang onto resentment or continue to blame, we tie His hands.
1Corinthians 13:4-7 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy, love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all thing, endures all things.These are words to read every day and to make them ours; if we learn what love really is we can act on it. When we extend love in this fashion it will break down barriers; however, it has to be consistent. Learning to love this way is contrary to what we have known and it takes time to become proficient at it. Love is like a hammer; a hammer which can break down the hardest of hearts. It is also irresistible in that men crave it; it is the way God loves which makes Him so desirable.
Colossians 1:19 & 20 For it pleased the Father that in Him (Jesus) all the fulness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile (names of people to be reconciled) all things (or people) to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.Speaking these words out in prayer to reconcile people works not only for those out of sorts with ourselves but with others with whom we are not out of harmony. Our words are creative and we can bring people together using His Word as a pattern; in this way we know that we are praying His will for it is His Word. I have seen great results using this method.
