With the concurrence of Bishop Sean Rowe and in the spirit of Dr. Sam Shoemaker, who 60 years ago encouraged committing to a 30 – Day period of prayer, we are promoting a prayer effort in support of General Convention and the election of a new Presiding Bishop in Salt Lake City.
From June 3 to July 3, prayers will be offered daily. We ask that all persons in the diocese join together in this prayer.
This Call to Prayer is being promoted by the Anglican Fellowship of Prayer, Diocesan Representative and Episcopal Church Women Board. See below for the text of the prayer.

30 Days – Call to Prayer
For General Convention and Presiding Bishop
June 3 – July 3, 2015
Almighty and ever living God, source of all wisdom
and understanding, be present with those who take
counsel at General Convention of The Episcopal
Church, Salt Lake City for the renewal and mission
of your church.
Guide the minds of those who shall choose a
Presiding Bishop, a faithful pastor who will care for
your people and equip us for our ministries.
Teach us in all things to seek first your honor
and glory. Guide us to perceive what is right and
grant us both courage to pursue it and grace to
accomplish it through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen
