Loving and gracious God,
as we gather together
to set the future course for our Parish,
I pray that we will all know the
presence and guidance of your Holy Spirit;
revealed through unity and love.
May all we say and do be according to your will,
and bring glory to you through good witness.
May we acknowledge that it is your church,
and our interactions be loving, affirming and positive.
I pray that each one of us will go from our AGM
with a sense of joy and peace;
and with renewed excitement and hope
for what you are doing in our Parish.
We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ,
our Saviour and Lord. Amen.
