Prayer and Reflection
Lord Jesus Christ,
in you we know the love of God.
When we gather together in your name
we experience the marvel of your loving presence
which challenges us to live for one another.
Help us to follow your example
so that we may never become complacent.
Help us to listen to your constant call to us
to continue the work you began,
you who lived and died for us.
Grant this through your Spirit of Love.
(Prayer for Unity of Christians)
