Vacancy Prayer

With one week to go before the closing date for applications, we remember our prayer that we have been using throughout this vacancy.

Heavenly Father,
During this vacancy,
guard and grow this Benefice as we serve you together
in this period without a Priest in Charge.
Lord Jesus,
We know that you have plans for us
and that these plans are good.
We ask now that you will help us to share responsibility,
grow in faith, love one another, care for those in need,
reach out to others, and welcome newcomers.
Holy Spirit,
Please guide those who are seeking the right person for us,
and those who are seeking the right place for their ministry,
that together we may discover your way for the future
and see your kingdom grow.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
