Conflicts require folks to take a side, pick a group. Why do we do that to each other?
4 What is causing all the quarrels and fights among you? Isn’t it your desires battling inside you?

I am attaching a poorly crafted diagram that speaks a message; not one pleasant to give or receive and perhaps this platform is not even the best place to present it because perhaps you have no conflicts in your Local Assembly of the Body of Christ. We have been praying for revival in the Christian Church. Perhaps this diagram gives a reason (among others) why revival has not come … yet.
ABBA, I am so sorry for these conflicts, please forgive me for being timid when I should have been bold and for being loud when I should have been quiet and help me now to discern the bold, the quiet and the loud appropriately. I pray for group A, group B and group C, for all of us to lay down our agendas and crucify our own flesh and not one another. I know You want different and better for every local gathering of The Body of Christ and I am confident the ultimate reason we are not unified in love is because we have not surrendered to Your Lordship. I am so sorry. Please forgive us; please correct us. Please bless us with HOLY SPIRIT conviction of sin, of righteousness and of judgment to come. And I don’t know how to end this prayer, ABBA, we need You to help us repent. I pray we do in JESUS name.
