Pray for our bishop and delegates

By: Bishop Lanette Plambeck, resident bishop, Dakotas-Minnesota Area of The United Methodist Church

I believe. I believe that General Conference is a form of Holy Conferencing and that you, O God, will show up. I believe your promises throughout the ages, still ring true: that you are our refuge, we need not fear, and that by the indwelling of your Holy Spirit, you are with us and work through us. Therefore, Holy and Compassionate God – guide us through this General Conference with your grace, your wisdom, and your peace. Break through anything that keeps us from embodying a Christ-like character and experiencing the transforming power of your love. This we ask in the name of the one who is our Savior, our Hope, and our Lord – Jesus, the Christ. Amen.
