Morning Prayer for the Diocese
Today and tomorrow, the clergy of my new diocese are gathering for two days.
From the Prayer Book, a prayer for the diocese:
O God, by your grace you have called us in this Diocese to a
goodly fellowship of faith. Bless our Bishop Holly,
and other clergy, and all our people. Grant that your Word
may be truly preached and truly heard, your Sacraments
faithfully administered and faithfully received. By your
Spirit, fashion our lives according to the example of your
Son, and grant that we may show the power of your love to
all among whom we live; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
