Prayer for a New Rector
Almighty God, giver of every gift we receive: look graciously on your Church, and guide those who shall discern whom God is calling to be rector of St. Matthew’s. Grace us with patience, trust, and hope through the interim times of doubt and uncertainty. We pray that we may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for your people and equip us to continue, improve, expand, and reach out with our ministries to all whom we can touch; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
