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


Living God, Judge of us all,

you have placed in our hands the wealth we call our own:

through your Spirit give us wisdom,

that our possessions may not be a curse,

but a means of blessing in our lives.

Grant this through Jesus Christ our Lord,

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

one 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.
