Heavenly Father, thank you for a spiritual home
For the legacy of those who have gone before us and welcomed us
Lord Jesus, thank you for your church
For the legacy of your word and witness across the world
Holy Spirit, thank you for renewing your church in every age
Unify us, Renew us, Reform us now
Make courageous and steadfast and persevering
in sharing your grace and Good News
in living your merciful, transforming love
in the building of your kingdom on earth as it is in heaven
Inspire us and defend us and send us out, Holy One
For the honor and glory of your name alone, Amen
Prayer for the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation
