Prayer for a New Bishop
Almighty and all loving God,
Eternal Shepherd and Guide,
we are grateful for Bishop Lynch
and his twenty years of ministry in our diocese.
During this time of transition, we trust in Your love,
confident that You will once again give to the Diocese of St. Petersburg
a shepherd who will inspire us to be
Christ’s heart of mercy,
His voice of hope and hands of justice.
Guide our new bishop to enlighten
our hearts and minds with the truth of the Gospel,
the power of the sacraments,
and the desire to serve you in all things.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
