Prayers For The Peace And Unity Of The Church by Arthur Judson Brown

O God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, our only Savior, 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 whatsoever else may hinder us from Godly union and concord, that, as there is but one body and one Spirit, and 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 truth and peace, of faith and charity, and may with one mind and one mouth glorify you, through Jesus Christ, our Lord,

Amen.


O God of Peace, who through your son, Jesus Christ, did set forth one faith for the salvation of mankind, send your grace and Heavenly blessing upon all Christian people who are striving to draw nearer to you and to each other, in the unity of the Spirit and in the bond of peace.  Give us penitence for our divisions, wisdom to know your truth, courage to do your will, love which will break down the barriers of pride and prejudice, and an unswerving loyalty to your holy name.  Suffer us not to shrink from any endeavor, which is in accordance with your will, for the peace and unity of your church.  Give us boldness to seek only your glory and the advancement of your kingdom.  Unite us all in you as you, O Father, with your son and the Holy Spirit, are one God, world without end,

Amen.
