Prayer during Search/Discernment:

O God of all that has been, that is, and is to come, we thank You for Your loving care for us here at St. Matthew’s. We praise You for Your glory and Your mercy through Jesus Christ in our lives.  Protect us from all adversaries that would seek to distract and dissuade us from listening for Your voice and help us keep our eyes on You.

Lead and guide the Search & Discernment Committee with Your wisdom and in Your timetable. Give strength, endurance and patience for the tasks that lie ahead.

Infuse us with energy, intelligence, imagination and love. Help us be ever present for each other during this time of transition.  Prepare us all as a congregation to receive the one You have prepared to lead us. Open our hearts to walk where You beckon and ears to hear you and give the assurance of Your loving provision for all our needs.

Glory to the Father, the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and will be forever. Amen
