A Prayer in Advent: for Peace in The Church

December 14, 2021

This Advent, join me in praying for The Church and for the people who are the churches. These prayers come from the Book of Common Prayer: Daily Prayer, published by our Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) sisters and brothers. It’s been on my shelf, recently re-discovered, and offers a wealth of riches. For example —

God of our lives,

by the power of your Holy Spirit

we have been drawn together by one baptism into one faith,

serving one Lord and Savior.

Do not let us tear away from one another

through division or hard argument.

May your peace embrace our differences,

preserving us in unity,

as one body of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
