On October 31, we commemorate the start of the Protestant Reformation when Martin Luther posted the 95 Theses on October 31, 1517. On this day we recognize God’s work of reform in the Christian Church, and we pray for unity among our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Prayer of the Day

Gracious Father, we pray for your holy catholic church. Fill it with all truth and peace. Where it is corrupt, purify it; where it is in error, direct it; where in anything it is amiss, reform it; where it is right, strengthen it; where it is in need, provide for it; where it is divided, reunite it; for the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
