For the Unity of the Church
Almighty Father, whose blessed Son before his passion prayed
for his disciples that they might be one, as you and he are one:
grant that your Church, being bound together in love and obedi-
ence to you, may be united in one body by the one Spirit, that the
world may believe in him whom you have sent, your Son, Jesus
Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of
the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
For our Episcopal Visitor, and for the Bishops in Whose
Dioceses the Companions and Associates Serve
O God, the Pastor and Ruler of your faithful people: look down
in mercy on your servants N., our Episcopal Visitor, N., the
Bishop of this Diocese, and all other bishops under whom we
serve; evermore guide, defend, strengthen, sanctify, and save them, and grant them your grace to teach and defend the apostolic faith, that they with the flocks committed to them, may attain to everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
