Prayers of Invocation on Reconciliation

Prayers of Confession on Reconciliation

O God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, our only Savior, the Prince of peace, give us grace seriously to lay to heart the great dangers we are in by our divisions. Take away all hatred and prejudice, and whatsoever else may hinder us from godly union and concord, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The Liturgy of Saint James, 2nd cent. 

O Lord Jesus Christ, who has established your church as the bulwark of true freedom, and has committed to all believers the ministry of reconciliation, continue your work of reforming and cleansing within the church and within our own heart, that being renewed by your spirit your church may bear faithful witness to the gospel, and we live out our days in your service. We pray in your own strong Name. Amen.
