The Prayer for the Unity of Christians/Prière pour l’unité des chrétiens
Seigneur Jesus, qui as prié pour que tous soient un
Nous te prions pour l’unité des chrétiens,
telle que tu la veux, par les moyens que tu veux.
Que ton Esprit nous donne d’éprouver la souffrance de la separation,
de voir notre péché, et d’espérer au-delà de toute espérance. Amen.

Jesus, South Porch

Translation:
Lord Jesus, You who prayed that we would be one,
We pray for Christian unity,
The unity You envision, achieved in the ways you wish.
May Your Spirit help us to experience the suffering of our separation,
to know our sin, and to hope no matter what. Amen.
