a prayer against 'undenominationalism'

O God, Who hast revealed to us the whole gospel of salvation, and wouldest have all men go on unto perfection in the full knowledge of Thy revelation, have mercy on those who know only the bare elements thereof; and grant that they, laying aside prejudice, may strive to advance in the realization of Thy truth; and rising above human compromises may fully believe Thy divine teaching, and seek no other basis of Christian unity than the fulness of the faith once delivered to the saints. Through etc.

Oh yeah. Its from a book called "Sursum Corda: A Handbook of Intercession and Thanksgiving", arranged by W.H. Frere and A.L. Illingsworth, A.R. Mowbray & Co., 1899.
