- “Do two work together unless they have agreed to do so?” Amos 3:3 So often we imagine we can accomplish much on our own, yet God calls us to walk in unity and friendship. There is a lot of conversation about collaboration in COP26 – because they have found it works so much better to work together. Pray for humility to honour one another in those conversations as they work collaboratively towards improving people’s lives.
- “ … I have filled him with the Spirit of God and with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills.” Exodus 31v3 (referring to Bezalel and Oholiab who collaborated on crafting the tabernacle of Moses) With so much of the detail still to be worked out and less than two days before the scheduled end of negotiations on Friday, teams will be working through the night again tonight to have agreed texts ready in the morning. Pray (again) for God’s purposes to be worked out and for Him to block the things that do not please Him.
- “Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you in exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” Jeremiah 29:7 Cities can be exciting yet overwhelming. Most of the world’s population now live in built up areas. Thursday’s conversation is about how cities, regions and built up areas will collaborate towards climate action. God knows and has purposes for each city. Pray for those purposes to be released.
