General Convention: Prayer I

God our Wisdom, who eternally makes all things new: encourage by your Holy Spirit those who prepare for General Convention to labor together for the building up of your world and your Church; counsel them when to act and when to wait; turn their hearts always toward those in greatest need, and away from their own preoccupations and fears; help them never forget that love and mercy are your greatest gifts given us all to offer one another as we see in them Jesus Christ who alone is our joy, our way, our truth, and our life. Amen.

Commissioned by the General Convention Office and written by the Rev. Jennifer Phillips, Vicar of St. Augustine’s Church, Kingston, Rhode Island.
