As we invite applications for a Benefice Youth Worker, we offer up this prayer: God of many names, You give each of us special gifts and skills and at this time we pray that you will lead a person with kindness, mercy and love to come and serve among us as our Schools and Youth worker. We give to you our past, with its joys, sadness, and mistakes; our present, with its celebrations, difficulties, hopes and fears; our future, with its pain and promise of what is ahead: trusting the hand that made the world trusting the spirit that breathes life trusting the love that will not let us go. We thank you that you will give us all we need and that we can always trust in you to lead us in our faith discovery and we pray that you will open our hearts to prepare for this new ministry among us. In the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
