Lord Jesus,
you prayed that your disciples might be united with each other,

in a unity grounded in your oneness with the Father and the Holy Spirit.
May your prayer for unity grow in the depths of the hearts and minds of all
Christians. May we be one in our words, that a single reverent prayer might
rise before you; may we be one in our yearning and pursuit of justice; may
we be one in love, serving you by serving the least of our sisters and
brothers. Lord, make us one in you.
