Prayer for the Selection of a New Bishop for Vermont
O God, eternal shepherd, who govern your flock with unfailing care, grant in your boundless fatherly love a pastor for the Diocese of Burlington who will please you by his holiness and to us show watchful care. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, forever and ever. Amen

Prayer for Peace in Syria
God of Compassion, hear the cries of the people of Syria, bring healing to those suffering from the violence, bring comfort to those mourning the dead, strengthen Syria's neighbors in their care and welcome for refugees, convert the hearts of those who have taken up arms, and protect those committed to peace. God of Hope, inspire leaders to choose peace over violence and to seek reconciliation with enemies, inspire the Church around the world with compassion for the people of Syria, and give us hope for a future of peace built on justice for all. We ask this through Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace and Light of the World, Amen.

Prayer for the Protection of Religious Liberty
O God our Creator, from your provident hand we have received our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. You have called us as your people and given us the right and the duty to worship you, the only true God and your Son Jesus Christ. Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit, you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world, bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel to every corner of society. We ask you to bless us in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty. Give us the strength of mind and heart readily to defend our freedoms when they are threatened; give us courage in making our voices heard on behalf of the rights of your Church and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith. Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters gathered in your Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation,so that, with every trial withstood and every danger overcome – for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, and all who come after us – this great land will always be "one nation, under God,indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
