Collect

A prayer written by Rev. Canon Jeremy Worthen, secretary for Ecumenical Relations and Theology, Church of England, for the 70th anniversary of the World Council of Churches.

12 January 2018

O God,
whose Son Jesus Christ prayed
that all who believe through his disciples
might be one;
help us to proclaim the gospel in your world,
and to live in unity and service,
that strengthened by our common work and fellowship
we may do your will
and at the last be brought together to the eternal home
where you live and reign for ever.

(Rev. Canon Jeremy Worthen,
Secretary for Ecumenical Relations and Theology, Church of England)
