*We offer our prayers for the Church and the world. In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer we pray
for the unity of the Anglican Communion. In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer we pray for St.
Paul’s, Lewiston and St. John’s, Youngstown. In the Parish Cycle of prayer we pray for our
renovation project, and we pray for Katharine, our Presiding Bishop, Michael, our Bishop,
and for all who serve the Church. Hear us, Holy Spirit.

serving in war zones, especially those known to us: William, Jessie, Christopher,
Anthony, Bryan, Jack, A.J., Greg, John, Ray G., Dustin, Billy, Aaron, Danny, and
Dominic. We pray for victims of all ages of every country whose lives have been
permanently changed by the emotional, spiritual and physical injuries of war, including
those at Walter Reed Army Hospital and other VA facilities and their caregivers. And we
pray for all countries being torn apart by war and violence, especially Iraq, Afghanistan, the
Congo, Sudan, Pakistan, and Yemen. Hear us, Holy Spirit.
* We offer our prayers for the Bishop’s Election process in our Diocese. Be with us and
guide us, Holy Spirit of God, as we seek your will for the future of our Diocese. Help us to
discern the needs and hopes of your people in Western New York, so that our search for a
bishop may proceed with clear vision and joyful obedience. Hear us, Holy Spirit.
