PRAYER: Prayer To The Trinity by Frederick Denison Maurice

Prayer To The Trinity by Frederick Denison Maurice

Most blessed and glorious Trinity, three Persons in one God,
teach us to worship and adore that absolute Trinity, that perfect Unity.

And that we may adore thee, that our worship may not be a mockery,
make us to know that we are one in Christ,
as the Father is one with the Son, and the Son with the Father.

Suffer us not to look upon our sectarianism as if it were a destiny.
Help us to regard it as a rebellion against thee.
Help us to see all distinctions more clearly in the light of thy everlasting love.

Help us to recognize the truth of every effort to express something of that which passes knowledge.
Help us to feel and confess the feebleness of our own efforts.
So may thy holy name embrace us more and more.
So may all creatures in Heaven and Earth and under the Earth at last glorify thee throughout all ages.

Amen.
