Dear Lord,

Guide the efforts for all involved in this process to bring a new rector to this church. Bless our Transition Team with open minds and hearts so that they may hear and respond to your will and your plan for us. Imbue them with discernment, grace and wisdom as they consider candidates. May our parish members have the confidence to express their needs and may the transition team be open to hearing them. Pour your blessings on all of us, Lord, that we may know we are acting in love and according to your will. In Jesus’ name we pray.
