Bishop Peter, having offered his resignation as our bishop to the Holy Father, asks you to pray with him for God’s Spirit to guide the election of a new bishop for our diocese.

Lord God,
You are our eternal shepherd and guide.
In your mercy
Grant your Church of Northampton
A shepherd who will walk in your ways
And whose watchful care
Will being us your blessing.

Bless us with the fullness of your love.
Give us the joy of having a shepherd
To lead your Church of Northampton
Who will be pleasing and acceptable to you.

In your love for us,
Give us the joy of receiving a shepherd
Who will be an example of goodness
To your people and will fill our hearts and
Minds with the truth of the gospel.
