The Litany

After the election of the Rt Rev Kevin Pearson as the 15th Bishop of Glasgow and Galloway, the litany below was written to acknowledge our enormous debt of gratitude and love that go out in our prayers for our sister Diocese of Argyll and The Isles and its people.

Today, voices from both Dioceses join together to bring our prayers to God.

Litany

In the peace of Christ, let us pray:
Kyrie eleison.

For the peace that is from above, let us pray:
Kyrie eleison.

For peace in the life of the churches and their unity, let us pray:
Kyrie eleison.

That the Holy Spirit will bring strength and courage, let us pray:
Kyrie eleison.

For bishop Kevin called to be the next Bishop of Glasgow and Galloway:
Thanks be to God.

For the people, congregation and clergy of the diocese of Argyll and The Isles:
Thanks be to God.

For the people, congregation and clergy of the diocese of Glasgow and Galloway:
Thanks be to God.

For all those who work and worship in Scotland for the furtherance of the Gospel:
Thanks be to God.

Inspire us to spread the Good News as Moluag did:
Holy God, hear us.

Help us to be builders of your church as Columba was:
Holy God, hear us.

Teach us to love as Mungo the beloved, loved:
Holy God, hear us.

Grant us the perseverance of Ninian:
Holy God hear us.

Remind us of your promises never to leave us:
Fill us with the Holy Spirit.

Strengthen our hope in Your future:
Fill us with the Holy Spirit.

Empower us to speak and act in Your name.
Fill us with the Holy Spirit.

To God the Life Bringer:
All praise and honour be.

To God the Pain Bearer:
All praise and honour be.

To God the Joy Giver:
All praise and honour be.

Blessed Holy undivided Trinity:
Unite us all in and through your love. Amen.
