A PRAYER FOR THE PARISH
your love for us is unchangeable.
You have welcomed each of us into the family of your Church,
in Jesus, you call us to be His Body in this place;
Send down your Holy Spirit upon us
at this time of uncertainty and change,
to fill us with vision and energy
and faithfulness in prayer,
that we may be true to our common Baptism,
and bring new life to our parish community.
Guide with your heavenly wisdom those appointed to discern the way ahead,
a new Incumbent for this parish,
that we may receive the priest you have prepared for your people:
ready to serve us with joy,
to build us up in faith,
and to lead us by example in loving obedience to your son, our Saviour,
