to those who are far off and to those who are near...

My cousin Drew is getting married in about a month. I have been asked to help with the wedding at an Episcopal church in Florida. While thumbing through the Book of Common Prayer I ran into a very missional prayer that I would like to ask you to join me in praying.

16. For the Mission of the Church

O God, who hast made of one blood all the peoples of the earth, and didst send thy blessed Son to preach peace to those who are far off and to those who are near: Grant that people everywhere may seek after thee and find thee, bring the nations into thy fold, pour out thy Spirit upon all flesh, and hasten the coming of thy kingdom; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the same Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
