Church Unity


Prayer for the Unity of the Church


On Thursdays a Unity Candle is lit as a focus for prayer and contemplation.



The following prayer from the Church of England website may be used:


O God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

our only Saviour, the Prince of Peace:

give us grace seriously to lay to heart

the great dangers we are in by our unhappy divisions.

Take away all hatred and prejudice,

and whatever else may hinder us

from godly union and concord;

that, as there is but one body and one Spirit,

one hope of our calling,

one Lord, one faith, one baptism,

one God and Father of us all,

so we may henceforth be all of one heart and of one soul,

united in one holy bond of peace, of faith and charity,

and may with one mind and one mouth glorify you;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.
