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..)
