Prayer for a New Bishop for the

Diocese of Des Moines ~ 2018

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.
