Eternal God, our glorious King,

whose Son Jesus Christ was transfigured on the holy mountain

and seen in splendour by his chosen witnesses:

grant us, his followers, faith to perceive his glory,

to listen to him, and to walk in his way,

that we may be changed into his likeness from glory to glory;

for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.






A Prayer for Choosing a new Rector

Bountiful God,

give to this parish a faithful pastor

who will faithfully speak your word

and minister your sacraments;

an encourager who will equip your people for ministry

and enable us to fulfil our calling.

Give to those who will choose, wisdom,

discernment and patience,

and to us give warm and generous hearts,

for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen
