All congregations are invited to remain in prayer for the discernment of our next Bishop Suffragan.
Almighty God, we give you thanks for calling leaders throughout the generations who boldly proclaim your love. Call through us now a bishop who will proclaim Christ’s resurrection, faithfully interpret the Gospel, and lead us into the world to love and serve the Lord, encouraging the saints and nourishing us from the riches of your grace. So guide the hearts and minds of those who will discern the person you are calling to be our Bishop Suffragan, that we may receive a faithful pastor who will guard and govern the church, sustain the presbyters, care for your people, and equip us to serve the world in Christ’s Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
