Bountiful God, give to this parish a faithful and loving pastor who will faithfully speak your word and minister your sacraments; an encourager who will equip your people for ministry and enable us to fulfil our calling. Give to those who will choose, wisdom, discernment, and patience, and to us all give warm and generous hearts, for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.
(A Prayer Book for Australia, p. 212)
