Prayer for the Consecration
Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts, in your divine providence you have appointed various orders in your church. Give your grace, we pray to Clara, called to the office of bishop in your Church, and so fill her with the truth of your doctrine and holiness of life that she may faithfully serve before you, to the glory of your great name and for the benefit of your holy Church.
We ask you to bless the Territory of the People as they continue in their mission to enable people to know Jesus Christ and to live and share the Good News, grow in faith, and serve God’s world. Keep them and their new bishop steadfast in faith and united in love, trusting in the promises of your Kingdom. Fill their hearts and minds with your grace and favour that their words and actions may embody Christ’s loving purpose in the world.
We ask this through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
