A Prayer for the Diocese
Triune God, Three-in-One and One-in-Three,
you created the Church to embody your mission in the world.
We thank you for the gift of your presence
so that we may be still and know your will for us.
We thank you for Jesus
who taught us that strength and growth
come through acts of humble service.
We thank you for the Holy Spirit
sent to lead us into all truth.
Bless the Synod of the Diocese of New Westminster
as we prepare to elect a Bishop Coadjutor.
Keep us steadfast in faith, united in love and courageous in action,
so that we may manifest your love for this world.
This we ask through Jesus Christ, our Friend and Helper. Amen.
