Creator God, we come to you in prayer
in this time of ministerial vacancy
and ask your blessing upon the different churches
of the South West Hants Group,
with all their different experiences,
strengths and concerns.
We thank you for our previous ministers,
and pray your presence and blessing upon them all.
We ask now that you will help us to share
to grow in faith, to love one another,
to care for those in need, to reach out to others,
and to welcome newcomers.
Give those involved in seeking a new minister
and those seeking to minister in a new pastorate,
insight into your will,
inspiration through your Holy Spirit,
and instruction through your Word.
Give us wisdom to see the opportunities before us,
courage to grasp them,
and perseverance to see them through
so that together
we may discover your way for the future
and see your kingdom grow. Amen
