An Octave of Prayer for General Convention: Day 8
The Acts 8 Movement is inviting every member of the Episcopal Church to join us in an Octave of Prayer for General Convention. We hope you will pray at various times of the day, but especially at 5:08 pm. (The number 5 is for the 5th book of the New Testament, the Book of Acts, and 8 is for the 8th chapter). Today we pray for the mission of the church.
July 1, 2018 – Pray for the mission of the church
O God of unchangeable power and eternal light: Look favorably on your whole Church, that wonderful and sacred mystery; by the effectual working of your providence, carry out in tranquility the plan of salvation; let the whole world see and know that things which were cast down are being raised up, and things which had grown old are being made new, and that all things are being brought to their perfection by him through whom all things were made, your Son Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
