Eternal Light, shine in our hearts.

Eternal Power, be our strength.

Eternal Wisdom, guide us as we serve you.

Eternal Goodness, you have drawn us to your heart

And united us in the Sacrament of Christ’s Body and Blood. 

Now grant that with all our heart, and mind, and strength,

We all may evermore seek your face.

And finally, by your infinite love, grant us wisdom as we seek to discern Your will for this Parish of St. James.

Help us to keep the needs of every member and of the greater community in our minds and hearts through every step of this discernment process.

In Jesus’ name we pray. AMEN.
