Prayer for the Synod

We stand before You, Holy Spirit,
as we gather together in
Your name.
With You alone to guide us,
make Yourself at home in our hearts.
Teach us the way we must go and how we are
to pursue it. We are weak and sinful.
Do not let us promote disorder.
Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path nor
partiality influence our actions.
Let us find in You our unity so that we may
journey together to eternal life and not stray from the
way of truth and what is right.
All this we ask of You,
who are at work in every place
and time, in the communion of the Father
and the Son,
forever and ever. Amen.
