Prayer for the Synod

Prayer for the Synod

Last October Bishop McGrattan invited us to join him on the journey throughout the synod. As the synod materializes in our midst, at the Pastoral Zone level consultation, let us lift a prayer for the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

We stand before You, Holy Spirit,
as we gather together in Your name.

With You alone to guide us,
make Yourself at home in our hearts;

Teach us the way we must go
and how we are to pursue it.

We are weak and sinful;
do not let us promote disorder.

Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path
nor partiality influence our actions.

Let us find in You our unity
so that we may journey together to eternal life

and not stray from the way of truth
and what is right.

All this we ask of You, who are at work
in every place and time,

in the communion of the Father and the Son,
forever and ever.
