Prayer for Christian Unity.

The Renewal of our commitment for the Unity of the Church.

Lord, we bow down before you in all humility, supporting each other with love and trying to keep the unity of the spirit, that we may become 'one body and one spirit', according to our common calling.

With one voice, repenting of our divisions, we commit ourselves to working together for reconciliation, peace and justice, and we stand together in imploring you: help us to live as your disciples, overcoming selfishness and arrogance, hatred and violence & give us the strength to forgive.

Inspire our witness in the world, that we might foster a culture of dialogue, and be bearers of the hope which your gospel has implanted in us. Make us instruments of your peace, so that our homes and communities, our parishes, churches and nations might resonate more fully with the peace you have long desired to bestow upon us.

We make this Prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen.
