A Prayer in Advent: for Other Churches

December 19, 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 —

Almighty God,

in Jesus Christ you called disciples

and prayed for them to be joined in faith.

We pray for Christian churches from which we are separated.

Let us never be so sure of ourselves

that we condemn the faith of others

or refuse reunion with them,

but make us ever ready to reach out for more truth,

so that our church may be one in the Sprit;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
