Prayer for the Search for St. Luke’s Rector

The following prayer is said at each Search Team meeting and at the Prayers of the People during each Sunday service until we call a Rector.
Hear us, O Lord, as we come to you for guidance. Give us patience in our search for one who will serve as rector of St. Luke’s Church. Help us to be responsive to the needs of those we represent. May St. Luke’s become new not only through its leadership, but also through the unity of its members.

We look to you, dear God and Father of us all, and to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, the head of our Church. We pray that through the power of the Holy Spirit we will be encouraged and made aware of your will for us as worthy members of the Body of Christ.

In Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.
