    An Invitation to Monthly Prayer for Christian Unity


    Are you being called by the Spirit to pray regularly for Christian Unity?

    Having preached today at Virginia Theological Seminary [notes to be posted later] on Christian Unity, I am conscious of the need to pray for Unity on a more regular basis.

    In fact, for the last few weeks I have been wondering if I should propose that we form a group(s) in the Consortium of students, faculty, administrators, Board and friends [anyone who feels called by the Spirit] to pray once a month.

    My ideas are just forming–but some colleagues whom I greatly respect affirm the inspiration.

    I am thinking of:

    • a monthly meeting
    • no more than an hour
    • with sharing of intentions
    • with time for silent prayer
    • with a short time for bible sharing/communal prayer [e.g. morning prayer]
    • with an initial commitment for March, April and May.
