Week of Prayer for Christian Unity; Day 3

See also

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity has been an important time of “expression” for over 100 years. During this time Christians throughout the world unite in prayer and celebration from January 18-25; the time that corresponds with the Feast of Saint Peter and the conversion of Saint Paul.

The theme chosen for this year is from 1 Corinthians 1:13, which calls us to reflect on the question, “Has Christ Been Divided?’

Today we will reflect as brothers and sisters in Christ, that though we may be divided by what we don’t have, we need to remember the generous promises God has made to us, and “together we have gifts enough to share with one another and “with every living thing.

Day 3: Together…we are not lacking in any spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 1:7)

Reading: Job 28:20-28
Psalm 145:10-21
Ephesians 4:7-13
Mark 8: 14-21

Prayer:
Faithful, open-handed God, we bless you that you have given us all the spiritual gifts we need to come to the measure of the full stature of Christ: for wisdom, for gifts of service and for bread. Help us to be signs of your abundance, gathered in unity to bring the gifts of your everlasting kingdom to every place of pain and lack. Filled with the Spirit, we pray in the name of the One whose gift was the bread of his life broken for us, now and forever. Amen.
