A Prayer for Bishop Peter.
Please continue to pray for Bishop Peter, his wife Jane and their family. Pray too for Bishop Ruth and the Archdeacons and others who will seek to lead the diocese during Bishop Peter’s absence. Here is a prayer you can use:
O Lord, you are our strength and our shield.
Your love sustains us through all the challenges we face.
We place into your hands all who are facing challenges, in this time of such uncertainty.
We hold before you all who are dear to us.
Particularly we pray for our Bishop, Peter,
His family and friends and all who love him,
As they face these coming months.
May they know your strength and protection,
Your healing and your love,
In the name of Jesus,
And in the power of the Holy Spirit,
