An Octave of Prayer for General Convention: Day 2
The Acts 8 Movement is inviting every member of the Episcopal Church to join us in an Octave of Prayer for General Convention. We hope you will pray at various times of the day, but especially at 5:08 pm. (The number 5 is for the 5th book of the New Testament, the Book of Acts, and 8 is for the 8th chapter). Today we pray for Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and President of the House of Deputies Gay Jennings.
June 25, 2018 – Pray for Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and President Gay Jennings
Almighty and everliving God, source of all wisdom and understanding, be present with those who take counsel in the 79th General Convention for the renewal and mission of your Church. Teach us in all things to seek first your honor and glory. Guide us to perceive what is right, and grant us both the courage to pursue it and the grace to accomplish it. We pray especially for the leadership of Michael, the Presiding Bishop, and Gay, the President of the House of Deputies, that they may exercise the ministry of leadership wisely and faithfully; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
