The 24th of August is Common Prayer Day, a day for Anglicans
all across the world to come together in celebration of their common heritage of
prayer and worship.
On this day each year Christians of the Anglican tradition renew their commitment to the tradition of Common Prayer as they celebrate a read or sung service of Evening Prayer from the Book of Common Prayer of the Church of England, the historic liturgy that has bound Anglicans together the world over since its institution on the 24th of August 1662.
Please join with us in Christian unity this St. Bartholomew's day by being one of the faithful who will raise their voices Heavenward in common praise and supplication.
WE humbly beseech thee, O Father, mercifully to look upon our infirmities; and, for the glory of thy Name,
turn from us all those evils that we most righteously have deserved; and grant, that in all our troubles we
may put our whole trust and confidence in thy mercy, and evermore serve thee in holiness and pureness of living,
to thy honour and glory; through our only Mediator and Advocate, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
