A Prayer for our Interregnum

Heavenly Father, during this vacancy, guard and grow our Benefice as we serve you together. Lord Jesus, we know that you have plans for us and that these plans are good. We ask now that you will help us to share responsibility, grow in faith, love one another, care for those in need, reach out to others, and welcome newcomers. Holy Spirit, please guide those who are seeking the right person for us, and those who are seeking the right place for their ministry, that together we may discover your way for the future and see your kingdom grow. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
