The Diocese of Guildford prayer diary functions to provide a focus for daily prayer in the diocese, with every parish featuring as the daily focus once every six months, with information such as Saints days, and the Anglican Communion cycle of prayer also included.
Its purpose is to draw the clergy and people of the diocese into greater awareness of and fellowship with one another through daily intercession. It also helps to make us aware that we belong to a world wide Communion of fellow Anglicans.
A prayer for the Diocese of Guildford’s vision and mission strategy;
God of our salvation, you sent your Son to draw all people into your abundant life: grant that your Church, empowered by your Spirit, may be the instrument of your transforming purposes in the world, that all may know your power to heal and save. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
During the month of January we pray for the special intentions of the parishes in the Deaneries of Guildford and Surrey Heath. In particular we pray for the Clergy, Churchwardens and lay staff of each parish.
