Northern Plains Anglicans: Prayer and Fasting for the Archbishop of Canterbury - UPDATED

From Northern Plains Anglicans, a faithful request:

Northern Plains Anglicans encourages you to pray and fast for Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, especially on the following Wednesdays: August 15, 22, 29; September 5, 12, 19. He will travel to New Orleans to meet with the Episcopal Church (TEC) House of Bishops (HOB), beginning September 21.

Archbishop Williams, along with other representatives of the Anglican Communion, will make a special visit in one last effort to maintain unity in the worldwide Anglican Communion. The meeting places terrible weight on his shoulders, and he will need God's help. . .

Some great prayer resources are being posted at Lent & Beyond.

This week's Collect from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer is good preparation for a season of prayer:

LET thy merciful ears, O Lord, be open to the prayers of thy humble servants; and, that they may obtain their petitions, make them to ask such things as shall please thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Read it all.
