A Prayer for the Church

O God, in mercy remember your inheritance, and do not forget the congregation of your people forever.  You are our Redeemer and the One who lifts up our heads, and under the shadow of your wings we find our shelter and our rest.

Have mercy on us, O God, and do not hide yourself from us.

Preserve, O God, the universal church in holiness and truth, in unity and peace.  May she ever advance the honour of her Lord, always represent his sacrifice, glorify his person, and advance his kingdom, that being accepted by you, and filled with his Spirit, she may partake of his glory.

Have mercy on us, O God, and do not hide yourself from us.
