Church of England House of Bishops

John 10:14-15 (NIVUK)
‘I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me – just as the Father knows me and I know the Father – and I lay down my life for the sheep.

O Good Shepherd, thank You for laying down Your life for the Church of England.

Hebrews 13:20 (NIVUK)
Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep,

O Great Shepherd, thank You for conquering death for the Church of England.

1 Peter 5:4 (NIVUK)
And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.

O Chief Shepherd, we pray that the House of Bishops in the Church of England will humble themselves under God’s mighty hand that they may be lifted up in due time. Guard them from dishonesty. May they cast their anxiety upon You and remain in the hope that You Yourself will restore the church and make her strong, firm, and steadfast. Help them stay alert and sober, resisting Satan and standing firm in faith. Amen.
