A Prayer for Arctic Clergy

In a letter from the Diocese of the Arctic, we are asked for prayers for the Arctic clergy. The Archdeacon of the Arctic, the Venerable Alexander Pryor writes: "One of our serious concerns going into the long winter is the reality of burnout and the need for clergy care. I've realized that the pandemic years, followed by natural disasters, the Arctic housing crisis, the epidemic of suicides in several communities, and now with fears over the current tuberculosis outbreaks in Pangnirtung, Pond Inlet, and Naujaat has all amounted to clergy who haven't taken time to care for their own well-being.</p> <p> As we work hard to raise more labourers for the Lord's work, would you please remember us in your personal prayer time, that we would know the Lord's Peace and strength, and would find opportunity for His sabbath rest and refreshment. After all, His strength is made perfect in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9)."


A Prayer for our late Queen

Almighty God,
whose Son Jesus Christ exchanged the glory of a heavenly throne for the form of a servant,
we thank you that you have given Elizabeth our Queen a heart to serve her people,
and have kept her devoted in this service beyond all who were before her:
encourage us by her example to serve one another, and to seek the common good,
until you call us all to reign with Christ in your eternal kingdom.
