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


Kindle in our hearts, Father,

the same faith that impelled Abraham

to set out from his home

and to live as a pilgrim in a foreign land.

As we, like him, look for the city

that none but you can design and build,

keep us watchful for your Son’s coming,

that we may be found faithful stewards

of all that you have entrusted to us.

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. 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.
