Prayer for our new Rector


Please include this prayer in your daily devotions:

Heavenly Father, we pray intently and expectantly as we search for a new rector of St. Mark’s. We ask Your help in discerning who it is that You are calling to serve. Speak to our hearts, Lord, so that we may keep a humble heart and remove all personal agendas. Let us do nothing without thinking of the good of all at St. Mark’s. Grant us the humility to value others and to build trust within our committee. Gracious Lord, allow us to use the gifts that You bestowed on each of us to accomplish this important task. We pray for our future rector, his or her family, as well as our own parish family. Put us in agreement that in all things it is Your will, done in Your way, that is accomplished. Give us an attitude of Christ and grant us patience and understanding throughout this process. Amen

Matthew 7:7-8:  Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be open to you.  For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be open.

Phillipians 2:3-4:  Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.  Rather, in humility, value others above yourselves not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others.
