A Prayer for the Unconverted (2)

An old school prayer from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer that is definitely not politically correct.

O Merciful God, who hast made all men, and hatest nothing that thou hast made, nor wouldest the death of a sinner, but rather that he should be converted and live; Have mercy upon all Jews, Turks, Infidels, and Hereticks, and take from them all ignorance, hardness of heart, and contempt of thy Word; and so fetch them home, blessed Lord, to thy flock, that they may be saved among the remnant of the true Israelites, and be made one fold under one shepherd, Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen. 


  • Jews - The Jewish people who reject Jesus as Messiah and as the Son of God. 
  • Turks - A referance to the Islamic Ottoman Empire and the religion of Islam they followed.
  • Infidels - One who rejects Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. 
  • Hereticks - Professing Christians or more correctly false Christians who teach or preach doctrines that contradict cardinal doctrines of the Faith (Trinity, Virgin Birth of Christ, Incarnation, Deity of Christ etc..)

Almighty God, our help in time of need, give encouragement and comfort to those who are discouraged, depressed and lonely, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. - Prayer by Randy Williams

A Prayer to be Prayed in Storms

O most glorious and gracious Lord God, who dwellest in heaven, but beholdest all things below: Look down,we beseech thee, and hear us, who are in peril; send thy word of command to rebuke the raging storm, and the roaring winds; that we, being delivered from this distress, may live to serve thee, and to glorify thy Name all the days of our life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (based on a prayer from the 1929 Scottish Book of Common Prayer)

A Prayer for the Unconverted

Burning In Hell  by Pennie Gibson

Merciful God, creator of all the peoples of the earth and lover of souls: Have compassion on all who do not know you as you are revealed in your Son Jesus Christ; let your Gospel be preached with grace and power to those who have not heard it; turn the hearts of those who resist it; and bring home to your fold those who have gone astray; that there may be one flock under one shepherd, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. ~Book of Common Prayer 

A Prayer for the United States of America

Almighty God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage: We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favor and glad to do thy will. Bless our land with honorable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.  ~Book of Common Prayer
