Prayer for the Church

Psalms 29 and 99, Isaiah 63-64, Hebrews 7:1-14

Today is Trinity Sunday.  The Psalms focused on the holiness of the Lord —

Psalm 99:3  They shall give thanks unto thy Name, which is great and wonderful and holy.

But this prayer, which I stumbled upon, although I really believe it was Divine Providence that opened the book to this page, is what I’ll think about and come back to —

A Prayer for the Church

O Gracious Father, we humbly beseech thee for thy holy Church;
that thou wouldst be pleased to filled it with all truth, in all peace.
Where it is corrupt, purify it;
Where it is in error, direct it;
Where in any thing it is amiss, reform it.
Where it is right, establish it;
Where it is in want, provide for it;
Where it is divided, reunite it;
For the sake of him who died and rose again,
and ever liveth to make intercession for us,
Jesus Christ, thy Son, our Lord.
Amen
