The General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada meets this year from July 10-16, 2019 in Vancouver BC. General Synod will be considering important matters for our common life such as the establishment of a self-determining indigenous church, the practice of marriage and the election of a new primate.
In the build-up to General Synod, please pray for all Synod delegates. You may like to use the following prayer:
A Prayer for General Synod
God of our ancestors, God of our future,
who was and is and is to come,
you have named us in baptism,
and called us into friendship with you and one another.
In this General Synod,
give all participants grace to listen well,
to speak with respect,
to deliberate with wisdom,
and to honour this gathering of your beloved Church;
through Jesus Christ, before whose name we bow in adoration and praise,
now and for ever.
