Prayer for the Benefice during the vacancy

Heavenly Father,

As we prepare for the arrival of our new vicar, we give thanks for the appointment of Revd. Geoffrey Clement as Incumbent for this benefice.

Lord Jesus, we pray for Geoffrey as he prepares to join us. Help us all to take our part, growing in faith and love for one another, and reaching out to others. May we all be ready to serve together with joy, to build our faith, and live in loving obedience to your example.

Holy Spirit, guide us at this time of uncertainty and change: fill us with vision and energy; make us faithful in prayer and worship, that we may discover your way for the future and see your kingdom grow. Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
