Prayers of Invocation on Unity
Almighty God, who has given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common requests to you; and does promise that where two or three are gathered together in your name you will grant their requests; fulfill now, O Lord, the desires and petitions of your servants, as may be most expedient for them; granting us in this world knowledge of your truth, and in the world to come life everlasting. Amen.
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.
Lord of lords, we praise You today for You have sought to know us, claim us, and even love us. You are the God of relationships, and You seek one with us. As You relate to Yourself in Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, you perfectly model intimacy for us. Through Your presence today, help us to better understand Your everlasting love. Amen.

O God, the Father Almighty, who hast promised to give the Holy Spirit to them that ask thee; look graciously upon us assembled with one accord in one place to make our prayer unto thee, and to wait for thy promise and of thy abundant mercy renew in our longing hearts thy Holy Gift; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
