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


Almighty God,

who alone can bring order to our unruly wills and affections:

give us grace to love what you command

and desire what you promise,

that, in all the changes and chances of this uncertain world,

our hearts may surely there be fixed

where true joys are to be found;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of 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
