Prayer for the Next Archbishop of Perth

Loving God,
we thank you for calling Kay Goldsworthy
to be the next Archbishop of Perth.
Guide her as she completes her ministry in Gippsland.
Give grace to Bishop Kate and Bishop Jeremy
as they continue to lead us through this time of change.
Encourage each one of us to do all we can
for you, and for the world you love,
in prayer and worship,
in teaching and care,
in giving and serving,
in our parishes, schools and agencies,
and in the communities where we live and work.
Prepare us to enter this new ministry partnership
trusting in your grace, which is sufficient for us,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
