Week of Prayer for
Christian Unity

Prayer resources offered by the churches of Latvia.

Theme for the Day:
THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE APOSTLES

Scripture Readings:

Isaiah 56:6-8 – For my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.
Psalm 24 – Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord?
Acts 2:37-42 – They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
John 13:34-35 – I give you a new commandment, that you love one another.

Questions:

  1. What is our experience of encountering one another as brothers and sisters in Christ through Christian fellowship, shared meals and common prayer?
  2. What are our expectations of bishops and other church leaders on the path towards the visible unity of the Church? How can we support and encourage them?

School Cycle of Prayer:

We pray today for the Earth Spirituality and Justice 2 class taught by Tito Cruz; Thuong ChuChe, staff; Cheryl Bey and Kerry Billingham, students.

Prayer:

God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the source of glory, may you give to all Christians, and especially to those entrusted with leadership in your Church, the spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that with the eyes of our hearts we may see the hope to which you have called us: one body and one Spirit, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Source of all, who is above and through all and in all. Amen.
