A Prayer for the 2016 General Synod of the RCA
Gracious Lord, since the beginning of the world, your Word and Spirit have
gathered, preserved, and protected for yourself a community, from the
entire human race, united by faith, for everlasting life. This you will
continue to do until the world’s end. Now by your Word and Spirit, guide,
meld, and illumine General Synod. Make it wise and welcoming, kind and
daring, sharing and partaking in the humble love of Jesus our Lord, in
whose name we pray. Amen.
