We give thanks to thee, O God; we give thanks; we call on thy name and recount thy wondrous deeds. At the set time which I appoint I will judge with equity. When the earth totters, and all its inhabitants, it is I who keep steady its pillars.
Psalm 75: 1-3
Father in Heaven, you are sovereign. You alone are the Lord. May we put aside all pretense of accomplishing anything in our own strength, and instead turn to you in weakness. Creation waits and groans for you, standing a-tiptoe, looking to the horizon for your approach. Guide and direct our steps. At the hour you have appointed, replace our justice and our equity with your justice and your equity. Restore your creation, Father.
We humbly pray for all those attending diocesan conventions this weekend. Inspire them with your Word and infuse them with your Holy Spirit. Guide their deliberations. Raise up godly and righteous leaders among them. Grant them the blessing of strong faith that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. May they know the perfect peace that results from trusting in your sovereignty. May you show them travel mercies on their return home.
We pray through Jesus, whose name is exalted above all other names. Amen.
