“Search Committee Prayer”
Source of all our being and of our life together: As we undertake this task of seeking a new rector of St. Mary’s, help us to be open to the Holy Spirit. Guide us, strengthen us, inspire us, help us to have the spirit of love in dealing with difficulties and disagreements. May we have the courage to speak, as well as the patience to listen. Help us to be open to finding a friend in a stranger. That together we may be strengthened in the work you have prepared for us. We ask these things in Jesus’s name. Amen!
