— Prayer for the Synod —

O Lord,
Ruler and Guardian of Your Church,
pour out, we pray, upon Your servants
a spirit of truth, understanding and peace,
that they may strive with all their heart
to know what is pleasing to You
and then pursue it with all their strength.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
