Rebuild My Church

Prayer for the Diocesan Assembly

We praise you, God of love,
our beginning and end.
Guide and protect us
as we answer the call to rebuild your Church.
Help us to remember that,
unless it is you who do the building,
we labour in vain.
Holy Spirit, renew our wisdom and courage
as we undertake this work.
Renew Christ in us,
that we may become a people
who show the world that he is alive
in the community that bears his name.
We make our prayer through our Lord Jesus Christ your son,
who lives and reigns with you, almighty Father,
in the unity of the holy spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

                                                                                 Amen.
