In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen

This is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

During this week, Christians all over the world are reminded of Jesus' prayer to his disciples that "we may be one so that the world may believe".

This means that Jesus wanted us all to be a part of one church, and so this morning we pray for unity amongst all Christians:

Lord, you have called us to be one,
to live in unity and harmony, and yet we are divided:
race from race, faith from faith,
rich from poor, old from young,
neighbor from neighbor.
Heavenly Father, break down the walls that separate us.

May our eyes be merciful,
as we look for the beauty in each person.
May our ears be merciful,
so we may hear our neighbors' needs.
May our tongues be merciful,
so we only speak words of love, comfort, and forgiveness.
May our hands be merciful so we may do only good to our neighbors.

And may all Christians be united in continuing to share the Good News of Jesus with all people.

Also, on this Memorial of St. Anthony, patron saint of lost articles and the poor, we ask St. Anthony to help us find Jesus and ourselves as Church in our world today. May nothing or no one be lost through your intercession.

St. Anthony, prayer for us!

We make our prayer in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
