Pray for the Lambeth Conference

Bishop Curry asked the gathered ECW members yesterday to pray for the bishops who will be going to the Lambeth Conference this summer from around the Anglican Communion; to pray for open hearts so that they may listen to one another and to God.

Here is a prayer to get you started:

Pour down upon your bishops, O God, the gifts of your Holy Spirit, that those who prepare for the Lambeth Conference may be filled with wisdom and understanding. May they know at work within them that creative energy and vision which belong to our humanity, made in your image and redeemed by your love and that they may have open hearts to listen to one another and to you at the conference, we ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

(adapted from a prayer written by the Dean of Canterbury, the Most Rev'd Robert Willis)
