Prayer for Our Episcopal Search

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, giver of every good gift, send forth your Holy Spirit and raise up for us a Bishop of your own choosing: a shepherd to lead and guide us with personal holiness, wisdom, compassion and grace. Father, we pray for a Bishop with vision and the commitment to serve your faithful people of the Diocese of the Rio Grande that we all may make known the love of Jesus Christ, who offered Himself for us and the whole world, in whose Name we pray. Amen.
