Prayer for Christian Unity

A Prayer for Christian Unity

0 Lord Jesus Christ, when You were about to suffer, You prayed
for Your disciples to the end of time, "that they may all be one, as I am
in the Father and the Father is in me".

Look down in pity on the many divisions there are among those
who profess faith in You. Heal the wounds which the pride of man and
the craft of Satan, have inflicted on Your people.

Break down the walls of separation, which divide one Christian
denomination from another. Look with compassion on those who have
been born into one or another of these communions, and bring them all
into the unity for which You prayed, "That they may all be one"!

(J. H. Newman)
