Please pray for our Bishop, Bishop-elect and our deputies...
Almighty and everliving God, source of all wisdom and understanding, be present with those who take counsel at the 77th General Convention of the Episcopal Church, for the renewal and mission of your Church. Teach us in all things to seek first your honor and glory. Guide us to perceive what is right, and grant us both the courage to pursue it and the grace to accomplish it; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
