Almighty and Eternal God,

We pray for our Church in this time of great change and challenge and in this season of remembering.

Surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses, we remember those who You called to do a new thing.

We remember those who led Your people through painful transitions.

We honour those who served sacrificially to enable a hopeful future to emerge and we give thanks for those who helped to bring new life into being.

Lord Jesus Christ,

Pioneer and Perfecter of our faith, give us grace to run the race set before us.

By Your Spirit, help us to see a joyful vision of what You are calling us to become and to endure what is hardest in our journey towards it.

And to You, one God in Holy Trinity,

Be all glory in the Church to all generations, for ever and ever,
