Today and tomorrow the Synod of the Anglican Church in Tasmania is meeting in Launceston to elect the 12th Bishop of Tasmania. Gayelene and I have been praying for the Nomination Committee, the clergy nominated, the members of the Synod and Bishop Chris Jones presiding at the Synod – God’s grace in Christ and the discernment of the Holy Spirit be with you all as you prayerfully gather in the name of the Triune God that Father’s will be done and Tasmania and the nation be blessed.
Eternal God, shepherd and guide,
in your mercy give your Church in the Diocese of Tasmania
a shepherd after your own heart
who will walk in your ways,
and with loving care watch over your people.
Give us a leader of vision and a teacher of your truth.
So may your Church be built up
and your name glorified;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
