A prayer for the election of a bishop


The Standing Committee requests your prayers during this time of transition in our diocese for those who serve on the Search & Nomination Committee and all who may be discerning a call to be our next bishop. Please pray for them during weekly worship through the election convention in June of 2020. 


Almighty God, giver of every good gift: Look graciously on your Church, and so guide the minds of those who shall choose a bishop for this Diocese that we may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
