Prayer for Christian Unity

During the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity the Anglican Centre prayed, each day, for the leader of one of the churches, or bodies of churches, with whom we are in dialogue. This is the prayer card we followed (click on it for the full file).

The work of the Anglican Centre in Rome is remembered in the Anglican Communion's Cycle of Prayer on the Sunday following the Feast of St Augustine of Canterbury. This year this will fall on Sunday 29 May. We invite you to join us that day in praying for the Anglican Centre and for Christian unity.


A Prayer for the
Anglican Centre in Rome


Almighty and everliving God, you have
called us in the body of your son Jesus
Christ to continue his work of
reconciliation. In gratitude we celebrate
the presence of the Anglican Centre in
Rome and give thanks for its reconciling
witness to Christian unity. As we
remember the gift of hope that so
inspired its creation, we pray that this
same hope may strengthen us in our
witness to justice and peace in the
world, and encourage us in our
commitment to one body, one faith, and
one Lord, even Jesus Christ, your risen
and glorified Son, who lives and reigns
for ever and ever. Amen.
