Everlasting God,

in whom we live and move and have our being,

you have made us for yourself,

and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in you:

give us purity of heart and strength of purpose,

that no selfish passion may hinder us

from knowing your will,

no weakness prevent us from doing it;

that your light we may see light,

and in your service find perfect freedom;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for 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
