Prayer for the Bishops at Synod

O GOD, our heavenly Father, We beseech thee to send down upon all thy Bishops, the Pastors of thy Church, the abundant gift of thy Holy Spirit, that they, being endued with power from on high, and ever walking in the footsteps of thy holy Apostles, may minister before thee in thy household as true servants of Christ and stewards of thy divine mysteries; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the same Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

Adapted from today's collect for the commemoration of Stephen Langton (c. 1150-1228), Archbishop of Canterbury from 1207
