A Vacancy Prayer

We invite you to join us in sharing this prayer during the period of vacancy.

A Vacancy Prayer

God our Father, you have welcomed each one of us in Jesus
and called us to be His Body in this place;

Send us your Holy Spirit,

at this time of uncertainty and change,
to fill us with vision, energy,
and faithfulness in prayer,

that we may be true to our calling
to bring new life to our community;

And guide with your heavenly wisdom

those who are to choose a new Rector for this Benefice,
that the one whom we receive

may be a wise and gentle shepherd of 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,
Saviour, Jesus Christ.
