Dear Lord, We give thanks for your constant presence in our lives. We pray that as a vestry, we will put our total trust in you as we begin our search for a new pastor. Open our hearts and minds to the Holy Spirit as we conduct our search and let us not lose patience or be discouraged as we work to fully understand your will for us and for Holy Trinity. We ask that our new pastor be a person of integrity and honesty and lead a life marked by prayer, faith, compassion and love. May he/she also be a person of vision who will strengthen our faith and reach the lost for Christ. We pray for our congregation that they will be faithful and supportive as we work together in unity to find a priest who will answer the call. Help guide us in our search during the months ahead. We ask this in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior, Amen. (Author: Joanne Wallend)
Isaiah 40:29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength ; they will soar like wings on Eagles, They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear for I am with you, do not be dismayed for I am your God: I will strengthen you and help you: I will uphold you with my righteous hand.
Isaiah 43:2 When you pass through the waters I will be with you and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned, the flames will not set you ablaze.
