We pause to offer prayers and thanksgiving that we bring to our celebration of Holy Communion.


Eternal God,

you draw near to us in Christ

and make yourself our guest:

amid the cares of our daily lives,

make us attentive to your voice and alert to your presence,

that we may treasure your word above all else.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

God for ever and ever.



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.
