Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
18th - 25th January 2023

This year the theme for a WEEK OF PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY is “Do good; seek justice” (Isaiah1:17) – ‘Learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow’.

Isaiah challenged God’s people to learn to do good together; to seek justice together, to rescue the oppressed together, to defend the orphan and plead for the widow together. The prophet’s challenge applies equally to us today. How can we live our unity as Christians so as to confront the evils and injustices of our time?

How can we engage in dialogue, increase awareness, understanding and insight about one another‘s lived experiences?

These prayers and encounters of the heart have the power to transform us – individually and collectively.

Let us be open to God’s presence in all our encounters with each other as we seek to be transformed, to dismantle the systems of oppression, and to heal the sins of racism. Together, let us engage in the struggle for justice in our society. We all belong to Christ.
