Prayer for Hurricane Recovery
For all those who are suffering the effects
of Hurricanes Harvey & Irma,
that God will comfort them in their time of distress.
For rescue workers, that they be strengthened in their ongoing response.
For the Church, that we will continue to respond
to the needs of our sisters and brothers
who are recovering from the storms.
As We Await Our New Bishop
Please join us in prayer for our diocese and the selection of our new Bishop.
Almighty God, Eternal shepherd and guide, in your love for us,
Grant to the Diocese of Richmond a shepherd who will lead us
To be Christ’s heart of mercy, voice of hope, and hands of justice.
Help him to fill our minds and hearts with the truth of the Gospel,
The power of the sacraments, and the desire to build up your holy Church.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
