Prayers for General Convention - Day 1

Almighty and everliving God, source of all wisdom and understanding, be present with those who take counsel in Anaheim for the renewal and mission of your Church. Teach us in all things to seek first your honor and glory. Guide us to perceive what is right, and grant us both the courage to pursue it and the grace to accomplish it; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

- Book of Common Prayer, 818, emphasis added

And one of my own:

O God who has gathered together deputies, volunteers, visitors, and advocates, (who dance on the Ubuntu logo around the love of the Cross) remind us in our times of disagreement that we are all created in your image. Give us ears and hearts to hear different perspectives in love that we may continue loving and serving you in peace, showing the good news and new life of Jesus' resurrection; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God now and forever. Amen.
