Daily Devotions for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity - 2019

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) in partnership in ministry with the Anglican Church of Canada (ACC), Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) and The Episcopal Church (TEC) have prepared a liturgical resource for the annual ecumenical celebration of The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, observed January 18-25.

The Daily Devotions for The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity invites Christians to reflect together on a biblical theme based on the words of the Book of Deuteronomy: “Justice, and only justice, you shall pursue.”

All of the devotions have been prepared by the four presiding bishops of each of the churches: ELCIC National Bishop Susan Johnson, ACC Archbishop Fred Hiltz, ELCA Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, and TEC Bishop Michael Curry.

The devotions can be found on the ELCIC website.

These devotions are available for use not only during The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, but also throughout the year.
