Prayer Diary

Our prayer diary gives us opportunity to pray for all of our congregations, and for all the work that goes on in the Diocese.  

The Prayer Diary is released on a quarterly basis, and is also available in a PDF format from the Diocesan Office.  Please note that if there are any changes, they will be made on this page.

Prayer Diaries for the Worldwide Anglican Communion and the Porvoo Communion of Churches are also available.

A prayer for our Diocese:

God, who has called us to be members together of your Church, which is the body of your Son, pour out your Spirit on this Diocese.  Endue with strength and love and wisdom all who bear authority therein.   Accept our gifts, our labours and our love, and use them for the advancement of your kingdom and the glory of your name.  Lead us in all our work for you, and unite us in the joyful service of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ.  Amen
