Bishop elections in the Episcopal Church are long, grinding affairs for all involved. Please pray for the candidates and their families. Pray for their current congregations, for whom this becomes a time of uncertainty. Pray for the Diocese of South Dakota. Pray for the Church.

Gracious Father, we pray for thy holy Catholic Church. Fill it with all truth, in all truth with all peace. Where it is corrupt, purify it; where it is in error, direct it; where in any thing it is amiss, reform it. Where it is right, strengthen it; where it is in want, provide for it; where it is divided, reunite it; for the sake of Jesus Christ thy Son our Savior. Amen.
