Fast from Social Media.
Step away from the divisiveness and false arguments of social media. Did you know the average American spends 2 hours a day on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Tik Tok, Youtube, Linkedin, Twitter)? Take some of that time and, as a church, put it towards praying for Jesus to move in our lives, our churches, and our country.
And why not invite your friends on social media to join you? Post about Fast Pray Love and invite others to focus on Jesus.
Pray for our country.
From October 24-31, Pray for Unity in the Church leading up to the election. It’s not about politics, it’s about showing the world who we serve. Romans 12:16, “Live in harmony with one another.”
From November 1-8, Pray for Peace in our Country. Election week is going to be hard and we need to ask Jesus to bring his peace and his kingdom. John 16:33, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
From November 9-15, Pray for Us, as followers of Jesus, to be marked by love. John 13:35, “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Be intentional about loving others. Where there are differences, seek love. Where there are arguments, speak love. Where there is animosity, move towards love. Love is an action.
Listen: Ask someone their opinion without offering your own
Give and Affirm: give a small gift (food, gift card) to someone with different political views than your own. Share some words of encouragement and true affirmations about them.
Write it down: Start a UNITY Journal.* Next time you have a problem (offense, disagreement) with someone write it down, don’t blurt it out. Then, take it to Jesus for him to deal with.
*Too much? Maybe a Unity sticky note or note on your cell phone.
