Bishop Sumner’s Prayer List –

Bishop Sumner’s Prayer List – June 2021
Into these spaces, come Holy Spirit

In the space where congregations need to find a pastor, or find the way after the pandemic

Veni Sancte Spiritus

In the space of uncertainty of the searcher and the doubters in our lives

Veni Sancte Spiritus

In the space of waiting and wondering for those who are sick, and those who accompany them

Veni Sancte Spiritus

In the space which opens up in conversation between combatants, in our culture, in our families.

Veni Sancte Spiritus

In the space where the exploration of thought and creativity, gifts from God, can move, in scholars, artists, scientists,

Veni Sancte Spiritus

In the space where the dead await the final day, the trumpet, and their being raised

Veni Sancte Spiritus

In the space created by our groaning, our puzzlement, our wonder, our hope, our wrestling, with You, like Jacob at night, or Job before his friends, or Peter at breakfast, or Daniel in his visions,

Veni Sancte Spiritus
