Join us in praying this week for AMiA Clergy and Churches, especially our Council of Bishops, and for Christ Community Church, Richmond, VA, Mark and their clergy, staff and parishioners.
Prayer for Clergy: Almighty and everlasting God, from whom comes every good and perfect gift: Send down upon our bishops, priests and deacons and upon the congregations committed to their charge, the healthful Spirit of thy grace: and, that they may truly please thee, pour upon them the continual dew of thy blessing. Grant this, O Lord, for the honor of our Advocate and Mediator, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Prayer for the Congregation: Almighty and everliving God, ruler of all things in heaven and earth, hear our prayers for this parish family. Strengthen the faithful, arouse the careless, and restore the penitent. Grant us all things necessary for our common life, and bring us all to be of one heart and mind within your holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayers adapted from the Book of Common Prayer.
