Let Us Pray

For Bishop Justin, Archbishop-Designate of Canterbury

God our Father, Lord of all the world,
through your Son you have called us into the fellowship
of your universal Church:
hear our prayer for your faithful people
that in their vocation and ministry
each may be an instrument of your love,
and give to your servant Justin
the needful gifts of grace;
through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen

May he and all of us be spared the dangers of false expectation and party strife, and may we be generous enough as a Church to welcome the gifts he brings.
