ANNIVERSARY of ORDINATION PRAYER for Gyllian Davies, who will celebrate FIVE years of ministry on June 4: Holy God, we thank you for raising up people of faith to shepherd us, to preach your Word, to bring us new life in Christ, and to nourish, forgive, heal and strengthen us through the Sacraments of your Church. We thank you for the gift of Rev'd. Gyllian's priesthood: As you have blessed her during her five years of ministry, grant that she may continue to keep her ordination vows, fulfill her duties of ministry, serve your people, build up your Church, and glorify your name; we pray in the name of Jesus, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
