The Prayer for the Anglican Centre in Rome
Almighty and ever living God, you have called us in the body of your son Jesus Christ to continue his work of reconciliation, in gratitude we celebrate the presence of the Anglican Centre in Rome and give thanks for its reconciling witness to Christian unity. As we remember the gift of hope that so inspired its creation we pray that this same hope may strengthen our witness to justice and peace in the world. We ask this through Jesus Christ, your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen
