Octave of Prayer for Christian Unity: Jan.18-25
With our Sisters and Brothers in Christ throughout the World, let us pray together:
From the islands and the oceans, we worship you, O God, the Creator of Life. Throughout the mountains and the valleys, we praise you, O God, the Savior of the world. With tongues of all nations, we thank you, O God, the Comforter of bodies and souls.
We come to you bearing our burdens and hopes.
We pray for the visible unity of the Church. Lead us to fulfill Jesus' prayer that we may be one and work together to manifest your Kingdom. In our differences, unite us by your love. Enable us to act together to uphold life and to make this world a just and peaceful household for all humanity. In your most Holy Name, we pray. Amen.
