The Vacancy Prayer

As a Church we are continually praying for this season, and that God will provide the right person to become our new Vicar.

God our Father,
you call us to be the body of Christ here.
Send your Holy Spirit at this time of change; 
and fill us with vision, energy and faithfulness in prayer.
May the gift of this vacancy be a period
of deeper love and fellowship, 
as you guide us with your heavenly wisdom.
Help us to choose the one who will
share with us in your perfect plans,
in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
