A Vacancy Prayer for St. Johns and St, Matthews
Heavenly Father, we are Christ’s body, and your Holy Spirit is the head of the Church. We commit to work together in harmony as two sister churches, seeking to understand and to listen to one another.
Guide us through this interregnum so that we take wise decisions, make inspired plans and grow, both in numbers and as Your disciples. We commit to walking alongside You as we seek a new priest, One whom You have equipped to lead us at this time in our history, One whom we are able to bless in return. through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen
