A Prayer from the Didache

This prayer from the Didache seems an appropriate response to the gospel reading for today:

We give you thanks, Holy Father, for your holy name which you have caused to dwell in our hearts, and for the knowledge and faith and immortality, which you have made know to us through Jesus your servant; To you be the glory forever ….

Remember your church, Lord, to deliver it from all evil, and to make it perfect in your love; and gather it, the one that has been sanctified, from the four winds into your kingdom, which you have prepared for it; for yours is the power and the glory forever.

From Ancient Christian Commentary on John
