Prayers:
Please include the Convention in your prayers, so that all may be intentional and open to the Holy Spirit, as we continue to grow and as we discern the election of our new bishop.

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, and those in discernment with us, 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
