Default The Pope calls on all of us to pray for Christian unity

The Holy Father has called us all to prayer during this week of Christian Unity. Let us join our prayers with his for the oneness of all the family of God.

Hence, the Holy Father urged prayer: "Because of the complex ecumenical reality, because of the promotion of dialogue, and also so that Christians of our time can give a new common witness of fidelity to Christ before this world of ours, I ask for everyone's prayer. May the Lord hear our invocation and that of all Christians, which in this week is raised to him with particular intensity."

May God grant us all perfect Christian unity.

Hail Mary, Full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, Mother of the Church, Mother of Christian Unity, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.

Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Especially deliver us from the temptations of intellectual pride and the evils of division from Christ's truth, that we might all be one in the perfect manifestation of your Kingdom. Amen.

Yes, may God grant us all perfect Christian unity.

Merciful Father,
We are together on Earth, alone in the universe.
Look at us and help us to love one another.
Teach us to understand each other,
just as you understand us.
Make our souls as fresh as the morning.
Make our hearts as innocent as the Lamb.
May we forgive each other, and forget the past,
and may we have peace inside - and in our world.
Today and forever.
Amen.

Catholics lets unite in praying for unity of Christians, Christian wars are destroying us, and it is not until we say a prayer specifically for this unity that God will help us understand each other and stop judging each other, and hence united,He is always with us and comforts us.please say a prayer or offer a sacrifice, remember there is no sacrifice too little to make a difference when offered willingly. God bless us and hear our prayers.

From A Catholic Prayer Book

Ut unum sint

Lord Jesus Christ, at your Last Supper you prayed to the Father that all should be one. Send your Holy Spirit upon all who bear your name and seek to serve you. Strengthen our faith in you, and lead us to love one another in humility. May we who have been reborn in one baptism be united in one faith under one Shepherd. Amen.

you successfully interceded with Him for a family's temporal need
please now intercede with your divine Son

Lord Jesus, may you unite us once more to spread the good word.

Our Father
Who art in heaven
Hollow be thy name
Thy Kingdom come
Thy will be done
On earth
As it is in heaven
Give us this day
Our Daily Bread
And forgive us for our tresspasses
As we forgive those
Who tresspass against us
And Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.

PRAYER FOR THE SALVATION
OF THE WORLD.
Father, hear our prayers for the salvation of the world.
Grant Mercy to all souls that turned away from You.
Open their hearts and minds with Your light.

Gather Your children from the east and the west,
from the north and the south.

Have mercy O God on those who do not know You.
Bring them out of darkness into Your light.
You are our saving God
Who leads us in our salvation.
Protect us from evil.

Bless and praise You O Lord,
hear our prayers and answer us.
You, our Savior,
are the hope of all the ends of the Earth
and the distant seas.
May Your way be known upon Earth;
among all nations Your salvation.

We put the world in Your hands;
fill us with Your love.
Grant us peace through Christ, our Lord.

Amen
