AOGIA Resources

The AOGIA exists to be a resource to biblically faithful Anglican provinces, dioceses, parishes, missions, affiliated ministries, clergy, and laity. Below are some of the resources that the AOGIA has developed. This page will be continually updated so check back often. 

  • The AOGIA team is uniquely equipped with scholars, theologians, professors, and experts in a range of topics who are continually curating relevant educational resources to equip Anglicans to be an effective public witness for Jesus Christ. From Civic Engagement Training for Clergy to articles on social ethics topics from a biblically informed Anglican perspective; the AOGIA seeks to equip leaders with the tools they need to lead in the challenging world we face today. 

  • The AOGIA actively protects  Anglican communities domestically by providing legislative education on key issues that are important to our constituency. Internationally, the AOGIA communicates with international NGOs, embassies, and the United Nations to advocate for the rights and freedoms of Anglicans around the world. 

  • When Anglican organizations face a crisis or legal issue, the AOGIA's general counsel is mobilized to assist and provide invaluable support and consultation. From legal consultations to connecting with third-party legal service providers, the AOGIA's team has decades of varied legal experience. 

Anglican Prayer Resources

Anglicans have a strong tradition of liturgical prayer. The following prayers are a collection of prayers, called collects. These prayers are taken from the Anglican Church in North America's 2019 Book of Common Prayer (BCP). There prayers provide a useful resource and are a great reminder to pray daily for our nation and our leaders.

  • A Prayer for our nation

    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 conduct. 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 of which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


    O Lord our Governor, whose glory fills all the world: We commend this Nation to your merciful care, that we may be guided by your providence, and dwell secure in your peace. Grant to the President of this Nation, the Governor of this State [or Commonwealth], and to all in authority, wisdom and strength to know and to do your will. Fill them with the love of truth and righteousness, and make them continually mindful of their calling to serve this people in reverent obedience to you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.


    O God, the fountain of wisdom, whose will is good and gracious, and whose law is truth: So guide and bless our Senators and Representatives assembled in Congress [or the Legislature of this State, Commonwealth, etc.], that they may enact laws pleasing in your sight, to the glory of your Name and the welfare of this people; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


    Almighty God, from whom all thoughts of truth and peace proceed: Kindle, we pray, in the hearts of all people the true love of peace, and guide with your pure and peaceable wisdom those who take counsel for the nations of the earth; that in tranquility your kingdom may go forward, till the earth is filled with the knowledge of your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

  • A Prayer for Social Justice

    Almighty God, you created us in your own image: Grant us grace to contend fearlessly against evil and to make no peace with oppression; and help us to use our freedom rightly in the establishment of justice in our communities and among the nations, to the glory of your holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

  • a prayer for those who inform public opinion

    Almighty God, your truth endures from age to age: Direct in our time, we pray, those who speak where many listen and write what many read; that they may speak your truth to make the heart of this people wise, its mind discerning, and its will righteous; to the honor of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
