A Prayer for the Anglican Communion:
Gracious God, we give you thanks for the gift of this world-wide Anglican Communion of churches: for our sense of belonging to all the ages, for the gift of thoughtful prayer you have taught us, and for the task of reverent study to which you call us. We thank you for the love of worship you have stirred up in our hearts, and for the love of justice you have implanted in our wills. Be with us in times of trouble as in times of joy; give us thankful hearts when we stand together, and send your holy Wisdom into all our disagreements. In dispute, may be we gentle and loving; in unity, may we be humble; in poverty, give us hope; in wealth, make us responsible and generous. Inflame us with prophetic vision so our fellowship will be the likeness of your kingdom of righteousness, proclaimed for all by Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Anglican Worship Resources Society
From their website: “For over 100 years, the Anglican Worship Resources Society (AWRS), which was formerly known as The Anglican Church Bible & Prayer Book Society, has helped congregations, missions, camps, Church Schools and other church groups across Canada obtain hymn books, prayer books, bibles, and many other resources which enhance worship. Yet we’re told that AWRS is one of the Church’s best kept secrets. To change that, this website has two goals:
- To inform those who would be in need of our help.
- To ask those who can to support our work.
