“Holy Spirit, we pray that you will breath fire in this Church. May we be united in Jesus, with love overflowing to the world. May we pray, listen, care, and be a people deeply rooted in your Word. May we be always ready to seek justice, resist evil, and celebrate God’s presence. May we joyfully proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen, our judge and our hope. Bless our commissioners to General Council, lay your tongues of fire upon them, and give them wisdom and discernment. We pray this in the strong name of Jesus Christ. Amen!”
