This prayer is part of the Swanwick Declaration of 1987, which marked the transition from a Council of Churches model of working to the Churches Together model.
Lord God, we thank you
for calling us into the company
of those who trust in Christ
and seek to obey his will.
May your Spirit guide and strengthen us
in mission and service to your world;
for we are strangers no longer
but pilgrims together on the way to your Kingdom.
