Prayer - February 12, 2018

2 Corinthians 5:17-18

So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation:

Everything old has passed away;

Everything has become new!

All this is from God who reconciled us through Christ

and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.


still my soul, that i might pray Thee

calm my mind, that i might hear Thee

light my vision, that i might see Thee

unveil my heart, that i might truly love Thee


bend my knee, that i might adore Thee

loose my tongue, that i might exalt Thee

come within, that i might know Thee

give me wings, that i might ever sing Thee

~ Dr. Karen A. Eshelman


Prayer for Our Next Dean

O God, you are the God of all creation and the preserver of our common life together. You are calling a leader into our midst, a person to join with us on our spiritual journey as our next Dean. We ask that you would use the profile we have created to call them to recognize where their gifts and strengths fit our needs, gifts and strengths. Urge them to be a seeker of the grace and guidance of the Holy Spirit, and imbue them with a passion to embrace the challenge and joy of a shared vision and ministry in this place and in this time. Amen.
