Prayer for a New Bishop for the Diocese of Des Moines
O God, Gentle Shepherd, you lead your Church to The New Moment with loving care.
You have blessed our diocese time and again with good, wise, and holy bishops.
We are grateful for Bishop Pates's dedicated ministry to us. We ask you to bless him
as he completes his service to the Diocese of Des Moines.
Grant us another Bishop who will inspire the clergy, religious, and laity of our community
to serve generously with him so that we might grow together in your love
and continue the good work you have begun in us for the sake of all people.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, Who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
