Gather your Church together into your kingdom

From Companionship to Discipleship

I thank you, Father, for the knowledge of Jesus and for letting me share my life with him. And I thank you for your Church, which proclaims his Gospel to me and through which he chooses to be with me, in his Word and Sacrament and in his mighty, yet silent presence in the world.

I pray for the Church, that i may be gathered together around your table. For as the Bread of Life, which we eat, was once scattered as grain over the fields and then gathered again to become one loaf, so may your Church be gathered together from the ends of the earth and united as one in your kingdom.

Remember, Lord, your Church. Deliver it from all evil and make it perfect in your love, and gather it from the four winds into your kingdom. For yours is the power and glory forever. Amen.
