Suggestions  for prayer

Loving God,
You have given your Holy Spirit to the Church
To lead us into all truth:
Bless with the Spirit’s grace and presence those sharing in the Shared Conversations;
Keep them steadfast in faith and united in love,
That they may manifest your glory
And prepare the way of your kingdom;
Through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord.
Amen.

  • Pray for the facilitators and members of General Synod who will be taking part.
  • We pray for those for whom the conversations will be challenging, and sometimes painful. Pray particularly for the LGBTI community as it shares in this process.
     
  • Pray for honesty and courage in conversations.
     
  • Pray that there may be wisdom and sensitivity about the way forward.
