The Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania issues a 30 – Day — Call to Prayer

lightstock_112731_medium_user_1243317With 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

-excerpts from BCP, page 818
