Gracious God, we praise you for inspiring the search committee members to present an honest, vibrant image of this diocese in the diocesan profile they put together. We ask for the committee to have the discernment they need to seek clarification, if it’s needed, and for guidance in selecting the slate of candidates for the Episcopal election. Now that the nominations are in, we lift up the nominees as they prayerfully prepare to respond to the questions they will be asked and the situations they will encounter. May your Holy Spirit protect and en-courage everyone involved in the process of calling the 9th bishop of the Diocese of Calgary. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
