The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is observed January 18–25.
This year’s theme is “Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit” (see John 15:5–9).
Jesus prayed that all of his followers may be one as he is one with the Father: “I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, so that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me. And I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may be brought to perfection as one, that the world may know that you sent me, and that you loved them even as you loved me” (John 17:20–23). May we join our prayer and efforts with his—this week and all through the year.
