Lead us to a unity of love

Prayer of the Day
Saint Dionysius the Syrian’s Prayer to End Discord

God the Father,
origin of Divinity,
good beyond all good,
and fair beyond all fair,
You are the abode
of calmness, peace, and concord.

Put an end to the discord
that separates us from one another,
and lead us back to a unity of love
that may show some similarity
to Your Divine Nature.

As You are above all things,
unite us by the unanimity of a good mind,
so that through the embrace of love
and the bonds of affection
we may become spiritually one —
both in ourselves and in each other —
by means of Your peace
that renders all things peaceful.
