PRAYER FOR THE DIOCESE OF DELAWARE during our search for the 11th Bishop In your Name, Lord Jesus, the community that is the Diocese of Delaware has been raised up and has flourished. We pray that in our day we may continue to be a sign of your presence in this State, a people devoted to You, and willing agents of your peace. In this time of transition as we seek a new bishop, help us to discern your will for us, receive with joy and grace those who offer themselves to the election process, and help us to celebrate the episcopal ministry we have been given and that which is yet to come. Give us open and gracious hearts, patience with one another,and joy in anticipation. Lord Jesus Christ be with us in these days, as you are with us always, for You, with the Creator and the Holy Spirit, are one, Our God, now and forever.
