“One of the greatest treasures of the ecumenical movement is the globally-oriented spirituality engendered by Christians from different regions and confessions. This legacy thrives today in the ecumenical prayer cycle—the annual prayer sequence in which Christians everywhere join each other each week to pray with and for Christians in particular countries and regions.”
—from the Foreword
Pilgrim Prayer, the new edition of the ecumenical prayer cycle, is a unique resource for global spiritual solidarity. Connecting us each week with the unique gifts and challenges of a particular region and context, this spiritual practice creates an annual pilgrimage across the world in prayer, uniting us in the Spirit and in witness and service to justice and peace.
For use by individuals and groups, in common prayer, liturgies, and newsletters, this new edition features updated regional and country introductions and intercessions, a multiyear calendar, and of course a rich treasury of prayers from the many countries and regions. Ten new sections also present prayer resources on specific themes of contemporary import, such as migrants and refugees, climate and creation, global health, and gender justice.
Nurturing a world community of prayer, Pilgrim Prayer and the ecumenical prayer cycle provide deep and broad accompaniment for our faith journey to a better world.
