The Peter Foundation – the foundation

The Peter foundation is an ecumenical foundation with focus on Christian unity, prayer, retreat and spiritual direction. Our calling is based on The Lord’s prayer in John 17. where The Lord prays for a visible unity amongst believers so that the world may believe and acknowledge him as Messiah.

“My prayer is not for them alone.
I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,
that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you.
May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.
I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as
we are one: I in them and you in me.

May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me
and have loved them even as you have loved me.
“Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am,
and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because
you loved me before the creation of the world.
“Righteous Father, though the world does not know you,
I know you, and they know that you have sent me. I have made you known
to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have
for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”
[John 17:20-26]
