Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
The First Pentecost...engraving by Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1794-1872).

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teachings and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” (Acts 2:42)

The theme for the 2011 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (5-12 June) - "One in the Apostles' Teaching, Fellowship, Breaking of Bread and Prayer" - invites Christians everywhere to pause and reflect on our relationship to the mother Church of Jerusalem and our own journeys of faith.

Prayer for Day 7 (Saturday 11 June)

Living in resurrection faith

God, Protector of the widow, the orphan and the stranger – in a world where many know despair, you raised your Son Jesus to give hope for humanity and renewal to the earth. Continue to strengthen and unify your Church in its struggles against the forces of death in the world, where violence against creation and humanity obscures the hope of the new life you offer. We pray in the name of Christ, who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, One God, across all the ages. Amen.
