Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

The “Week of Prayer for Christian Unity” is Jan 18-25, 2017.
We invite you to pray in solidarity with all Christians:

Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
we thank you for this week of prayer for Christian Unity,
for being together as Christians
and for the different ways
we have experienced your presence.
Let us always praise your holy name together
so that we may continue to grow in unity and reconciliation.

In our work for unity may we be people of reconciliation and peace:
“Where there is hatred, may we sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.”

We pray this in the name of Christ, whose love compels us.
