Today’s prayer for General Council comes from Rev. Natalie Istead, who was ordained by the Montreal and Ottawa Synod just over a week ago! To view the archive of all prayers being offered in the lead up to GC43 click here.

“Jesus, you are Lord of this Church. Over the next weeks, may the commissioners to General Council sing to your glory. May they listen for your Word.

Long ago, you called: “Samuel, Samuel!” When you call to our commissioners, may they answer “Here I am” and “your servant is listening.”

Help us all to listen and to pray. Holy Spirit, move in this Church.

We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen!”
