Zechariah 10:1a (NIV)
Ask the Lord for rain in the springtime . . .
Dear Heavenly Father,
We know that Bishop Welby has not yet been consecrated, but there is already so much work for him to attend to. As he prepares for his new role, we pray that he will pay attention to Your commandments and carefully follow them so that he may be the head, and not the tail. Open the heavens, Lord, the storehouse of Your bounty, over Justin and bless all the work of his hands. Amen.
