This Epiphany Night, A Call To Prayer

Good evening everyone. On a night we celebrate as a church how Wise persons journeyed far to give gifts and celebrate a King not their own we must pray for this nation. The violence, chaos and turmoil around the electoral confirmation has revealed the disaffection, hatred, division, racism, and pain of our country as we step into a new year and a new administration. Click below to register and join others for prayer at 7pm and otherwise pray for peace using the words of our Book of Common Prayer or your own.

Pray For Peace... Book Of Common Prayer

17. For the Nation

Lord God Almighty, you have made all the peoples of the
earth for your glory, to serve you in freedom and in peace:
Give to the people of our country a zeal for justice and the
strength of forbearance, that we may use our liberty in
accordance with your gracious will; through Jesus Christ our
Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one
God, for ever and ever. Amen.

18. For Peace

Almighty God, kindle, we pray, in every heart the true love of
peace, and guide with your wisdom those who take counsel
for the nations of the earth, that in tranquility your dominion
may increase until the earth is filled with the knowledge of your
love; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with
you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for
ever. Amen.
