Preparing Our Hearts Prayer (revised 7/24/2020)
Loving God, giver of all good gifts, now, as the congregation and staff of First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley, we await the gift you have given us in the PNC’s choice of our new Senior Pastor.
We pray that you would attend to us as a Body of Believers, continuing to knit us together.
We pray that you would open our hearts wide to fully embrace in love and kindness our new Senior Pastor as we look forward to offering a generous welcome.
We pray with complete confidence and trust that you have been a part of the process leading this PNC and bringing about your desired choice for our church.
We thank you in advance for our new Senior Pastor and pray for ease and care for all in the upcoming transition given the unique circumstances of this time.
Creator God, you offer us the promise that you are always creating and bringing about newness. We look forward with excitement to join together in ministry with our new Senior Pastor for the sake of the gospel and the good of the world.
We pray this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
