Today's focus for prayer is for the members of General Synod as they prepare for tomorrow's crucial debate and vote on the women bishops measure.
Let us pray for the members of General Synod
as they prepare for tomorrow's debate and vote.
Be devoted to one another in love.
Honour one another above yourselves. Romans 12:10
Now there are varieties of gifts but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. 1 Corinthians 12: 4-7
It's the 9th day of the NovemberNovena days of prayer for the Church of England General Synod. There will be 2 more days of this particular prayer cycle - so 11 in total.
For an introduction to this cycle of prayer see Prayer for General Synod: love and joy. Scroll down the blog archive for November in the right hand side bar to see the posts from previous days. My hope is that some of you who do that will also pray the prayers.
