Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Antiphon (mantra) repeat quietly:

God shows no partiality. We pray that we, too, may show no partiality.

Psalm 20

May God answer you in time of distress;
may God's name protect you.
May you receive help and strength
and be remembered for your offerings.
May your sacrifices be found favorable.
May God give you your heart's desire,
fulfill every one of your plans.

We will rejoice
and exalt the name of God.

I am sure now that God saves the anointed
and always answers prayers.

Some trust in chariots or horses,
but we trust in the name of God.

They shall fall,
but we shall stand firm.

Save us, O God;
save your anointed.
Give answer on the day we call.

Pray the Prayer of Jesus (Our Father)
