We ask you to hold in your prayers the members of the Committee as they continue their important work of discernment:

Sheila Collins and Freddy Tovar (Co-Chairs), Aracelis Mullings (Vestry), Kathi Armbrister, Laura Keith, Rafael Padilla, Glen Velker and Jim Carlton (Chaplain).

God will not overlook our work and the love which we show for his sake. Teach us to do what pleases you, for you are our God:

God of all Love. God of inspiration, God of Peace, God of Hope and Glory sanctify us we pray, as your representatives in this community, and Your Church in this place.

Let your Good Spirit lead us on level ground.

Remove from our minds and hearts any doubt, trepidation, fear we may experience during this process, and we ask that your Holy Comforter be among us to keep us calm and focused on this Holy Task.

Let your Good Spirit lead us on level ground.

We come to you this day willing servants to follow your inspiration and guidance as we in one accord select the next Spiritual Leader for our congregation.

Let your Good Spirit lead us on level ground.

Grant us childlike innocence, wonder and awe as our mission unfolds, and your will is revealed to us. Grant us unbridled joy and excitement as we feel your presence and inspiration in our lives.

Let your Good Spirit lead us on level ground.

Keep us we pray in your steadfast love, and open our hearts, and minds as we examine and watch and pray. We ask your loving presence in all of our deliberations. Lead us to the right candidate. Lead the right candidate to us.

Let your Good Spirit lead us on level ground.

Send us one, we pray, who loves you and your work with complete abandon; one eager to lead us into a closer knowledge and love of your mighty power and salvation.

Let your good Spirit lead us on level ground.

We now ask your blessings on our congregation, as they wait, and watch with us. Hold them in your warm and comforting arms of love. Give them the gift of patience and forbearance, and understanding, as your plan unfolds among and around us. Give them and us your Blessed Assurance of our fruitful efforts and your abiding love.

Let your Good Spirit lead us on level ground.

We thank you for the candidates we will receive, and ask that you guide them, as you are guiding us, into a closer relationship with you, whether or not they are destined to serve with us.

 Accept our thanksgiving for your love and guidance in all these things. 

 May God, who has given us the ability to fulfill this ministry, give us the Grace to accomplish it to the Glory of Your Name and to further Your work in our community.

All these things we humbly ask in your Holy and Majestic Name.

Amen.

hinking of you!
