Praying for the election of a new bishop in the Diocese of Singapore

Thanks to David Ould at Stand Firm for posting this news about the upcoming election in Singapore as a reminder for prayer:

The 2012 synod of the Diocese of Singapore meets later this week on Friday and Saturday 11&12 May. While there’s obviously lots to do, the main item of interest will be the election of a new bishop, replacing John Chew [wiki] who has served in that capacity (and, more recently, as Primate of SE Asia). It’s a key appointment, not only as leader of a wonderfully missionary diocese (Singapore diocese is active in Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Nepal) but also in terms of current global Anglicanism.

There’s more at Stand Firm.

Update:  in a revision to the original post at Stand Firm, David O. states that there may not be an election, merely the announcement of the new appointment as bishop.  But still be praying!
