A Prayer for Our Synod Gathering 2021 

God our help and our strength, we gather in these unusual times as a synod family and are reminded of your great love of your people and for your Church. Help us to be diligent in our seeking, and faithful and courageous in our following of the paths you are opening before us. Help us to not only discern the leading of your Spirit, but to give space in our lives for your grace to do its work in and through us in all things. We ask this in the name of your Son, our hope and our vision. Amen.

Please pray for my husband, Tom B, who is critically ill, from a brain tumour and a stroke.

We are thankful that he is still with us and that we can see him every day.

A Prayer for New Vision 
Opening Synod Service 2021
Bishop Todd
Almighty God give us a new vision of you, of your love, of your grace and power; and then, give us a new vision of what you would have us do as your church in this Diocese. Help us to be faithful to the leading of your Holy Spirit and in the midst of change to be always confident in your abiding presence with us and the abundance of grace available to us. We ask this through our Saviour Jesus Christ, and in the power of the Holy Spirit Amen.
