Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2017 – Day 4


Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
January 18-25, 2017

Reconciliation – The Love of Christ Compels Us
(cf. 2 Corinthians 5:14-20)

Day 4
Everything old has passed away
(2 Corinthians 5:17)

    • Don’t look back (Genesis 19:15-26)
    • God is always faithful (Psalm 77:5-15)
    • Forgetting what lies behind (Philippians 3:7-14)
    • Keep your hand on the plough (Luke 9:57-62)


Lord Jesus Christ,
the same, yesterday, today and for ever.
Heal the wounds of our past,
bless our pilgrimage towards unity today
and guide us into your future,
when you will be all in all,
with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
for ever and ever.
