Let Us Never Widen the Church’s Breaches

on

Here’s a prayer I just discovered by Bishop Thomas Ken, who was one of the Nonjurors.  It is somehow apt in our own time:

“Our God, amidst the deplorable division of your church, let us never widen its breaches, but give us universal charity to all who are called by your name. Deliver us from the sins and errors, the schisms and heresies of the age. Give us grace daily to pray for the peace of your church, and earnestly to seek it and to excite all we can to praise and love you; through Jesus Christ, our one Saviour and Redeemer.”
