A prayer for our diocese during the period of review

Gracious God, 

in this period of review for the life of our diocese,

help us to recognize love in every human being, 

Grant that our attention, our questions, our living, 

may be focused on your Son whose love is utterly truthful; 

help us to recognise that it is by travelling through

the perplexing places of grievance, pain and death

that the Holy Spirit is bringing the whole of anguished humankind

and the groaning universe itself to the place of joy and wonder.
