I’ve been praying this evening here in Africa, Kendall.  May the Lord send for His light and truth and lead you all clearly in His good and perfect ways.  May He unite your hearts in His love and His truth and fill you with Holy Spirit boldness.  May His name be glorified and lifted high tomorrow and throughout the future in the diocese.

May the Lord fill +Mark to overflowing with His Holy Spirit and give him His words to speak.

Almighty God, we know that Your Holy Spirit will be present at this convention. We know that the other spirit will also be present. Give the Bishop and the convention delegates the gift of discernment of spirits, that they might receive guidance and direction from You, and act in accordance with Your will. Strengthen them in body, mind, and soul, that they might endure and persevere in this spiritual war against the forces of evil, that You have allowed to be present on this earth, and in the Church, to challenge us. Comfort them, and make Your presence known to them, that they might not despair or waiver in their faith. All this we ask in the Holy Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

#6 You know how to get rid of the other spirit, don’t you?  Worship and praise, for God inhabits the praises of His people.  Works every time!  So blow the trumpet and bang the drum, and the walls of Jericho will come tumbling down.

Lord Jesus Christ, thou Son of God and son of man, thou only art the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father but by thee. Thou alone hast the words of eternal life, and to thou alone must we give an accounting for our lives. We come before thee to humbly surrender our feeble and tiresome wills to thine strong and steadfast design.  Bring us, by thy grace, to the foot of thine own Cross, where we may be still, our heart and souls grown quiet before thee. Set our gaze on thy most glorious Passion.  Fill us with reverence and awe for thee, and for thou alone.  Guide us, we pray, as we seek thy face, and desire to know and to do thy will above all else.  Send us forth in the power of thy Spirit to do the work thou givest us to do.  May glory, honor, and praise be thine, both now, and forevermore.  Amen.

Heavenly Father
Bless the diocese of South Carolina as it meets today in Convention
Set Your guardian angels to protect its bishop and delegates
Fill it with praise and worship of You
Fill them with joy and peace
and the certainly of discerning Your will
suffuse them with Your Holy Spirit
and may everything said and done be from You
and honoring to Your Name and for the purpose of
building up Your Kingdom
In Jesus’ Name we pray

May God grant you reconciliation with the Episcopal Church or at least a compromise that will enable parishes to continue to flourish.  May there be a softening of hearts on all sides of this controversy. God bless Bishop Lawrence and all of you.
