Prayer for General Synod

6th July 2015

The General Synod of the Church of England meets in York from 10-13 July.  During this time the Archbishops of Canterbury and York would like to encourage people throughout the dioceses and parishes to pray for the work and life of the General Synod and the wider church.

Almighty Father,

Give us grace and strength this day

to build up your church

in love for the world,

in the making of disciples

and to equip the saints for the work of ministry.

Plant your hope deep within us.

Open our eyes to a fresh vision of your kingdom.

Give us wisdom for the comman task.

Draw us and all your Church deeper into Christ,

our foundation and cornerstone,

that we may work together as one body,

in the power of the Spirit

and for the sake of your glory.

Amen.
