Prayer for Christian Unity

Lord Jesus,
who prayed that we might all be one,
we pray to You for the unity of Christians,
according to your will,
according to your means.

May your Spirit enable us
to experience the suffering caused by division,
to see our sin,
and to hope beyond all hope.


This prayer for Christian Unity was composed by Abbé Paul Couturier (one of the founders of the Ecumenical Groupe des Dombes), and accepted by the Vatican Council for Unity.
