A Diocesan Prayer in support of new vision for the Church’s mission:
God of gentleness and love
Draw near to us as we draw near to you
Dwell in every heart and conversation
Fashion us in the likeness of your Son Jesus Christ
Help us to discern together all that you are calling us to be
And all that you are calling us to do.
Assist us, by your Spirit, to become a more contemplative, more compassionate and more courageous Church
For the building of your kingdom and the glory of your Son
God of love,
The sea is so great and our boat is so small.
Inspire your church as we put out into deep water,
Help us to be contemplative, compassionate and courageous in your mission,
Guide us by your Spirit to discover where you are working,
Help us to join in the building of your kingdom
and anoint us afresh to make disciples of all ages in your name
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ who calls us and sends us
With you and the Holy Spirit, one God now and for ever.
