Prayer for choosing the new Archbishop of York

Prayer for the Process of appointing the new Archbishop of York

The Crown Nominations Commission is meeting shortly in the first stage of appointing a new Archbishop of York.  We are asked to hold the process and the Commission in our prayers.  Here is the prayer written by the Bishop of Hull:

Faithful God,
you guide your people
and raise up leaders in every generation.

We seek the person you are calling to be Archbishop of York.

By your Spirit, give to all those involved in the appointment
good counsel, holy insight and sound judgement.

Keep the person you are calling under the shadow of your wing,
and teach us all to trust in the guidance which is yours alone,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
