DMAS Cycle of Prayer
The Christian Church is a community of prayer and one of the chief duties of each Christian is to pray for his or her brothers and sisters in The Faith. Therefore, each week during the Church Year, at each service held in each congregation of the Diocese, we ask all to include those parishes, dioceses, and the associated clergy listed in their prayers. The clergy of the Diocese, who are all bound to say daily Morning and Evening Prayer, are asked to include them in their daily prayers as well.
Archbishop Mark Haverland. Bishop Donald Lerow. Christian Unity. The Persecuted Church. Vocations to the Priesthood.
The President and all those in authority. For the Parishes and Missions, Clergy, Lay Readers, Servers, Altar Guilds and People of the Diocese, and for the local community.
Our brethren in the Roman Catholic Church. For dialogue and understanding between us.
Our brethren in the Orthodox Churches. For dialogue and understanding between us.
For the Anglican Communion and for its return to orthodoxy. For Traditionalists in the Anglican Communion and other Continuing Anglicans.
For the Anglican Province of Christ the King, the United Episcopal Church in the USA, the Anglican Province of America, and the Anglican Church in America (our Sister Churches).
For the “Non Conformist and Free Churches”.
The Old Catholic Churches. For the departed members of the Anglican Catholic Church and for those who mourn them.
ALMIGHTY God, who alone gavest us the breath of life, and alone canst keep alive in us the holy desires thou dost impart; We beseech thee, for thy compassion’s sake, to sanctify all our thoughts and endeavours; that we may neither begin an action without a pure intention nor continue it without thy blessing. And grant that, having the eyes of the mind opened to behold things invisible and unseen, we may in heart be inspired by thy wisdom, and in work be unheld by thy strength, and in the end be accepted of thee as thy faithful servants; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
