Prayer for Auxiliary Bishop-Elect
Heavenly Father, you sent Jesus to shepherd your people and the Holy Spirit to
make your people one. Send your Holy Spirit to anoint our new Auxiliary
Bishop–Elect, Fr Michael Router, that he may continue the work of renewal in
the Church and unite our parishes, priests and people in love, truth and wisdom.
Give him a true shepherd’s heart like that of Jesus, that he may give strength to
the weak, heal the broken hearted, console the lonely, bring back the wandering
and be a power against the evil of our day.
We pray through Christ our Lord.
AMEN.
