Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2019
Goodmayes Fellowship of Churches
Let us pray.
Just as I am – your love unknown
has broken every barrier down –
now to be yours, yes, yours alone,
O Lamb of God, I come!
From the islands and the oceans,
we come to worship you, O God, the Creator of life.
Through the mountains and the valleys,
we come to praise you, O God, the Saviour of the world.
With the tongues of all nations,
we come to thank you, O God, the Comforter of bodies and souls.
we come before you bearing hopes for unity.
Lord, you are the source of our unity;
by your grace and power,
you call your churches to unite as members of the body of Christ.
we pray for unity in all our churches here in Goodmayes.
We thank you for the many colours, cultures, and customs
that we share in our community.
Bless your churches to live unity in diversity as a witness to your communion in Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
In our differences, Lord, unite us by your love.
In every local congregation, may worship be offered reverently
faith be deepened and strengthened,
and ministry bring healing and hope.
And in the church universal, O God,
may the Gospel be so clearly proclaimed
and compellingly demonstrated .
In Jesus name we pray.
