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


Provident Father,

with the prayer your Son taught us always on our lips,

we ask, we seek, we knock at your door:

help us so to seek that we may truly find,

so to ask that we may joyfully receive,

and so to knock that the door of mercy

may be opened for us;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.




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.
