Stir up in us the gifts of your Spirit for the service of your gospel, that we – so blessed by your grace – may discern your call in our lives and respond courageously and obediently, bringing forth the fruits of the Spirit in ministries of rich variety. Take us and use us, to love and serve others in the power of the Holy Spirit and in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Note: This Prayer may be used within the Intercessions or as a Post-Communion Prayer or at any other suitable point in the service. The Bishops request that it be included in all Confirmation Services through the year as we, as a diocese, reflect on our calling as individual disciples and as the Body of Christ sharing in the mission and ministry of God.
Confirmation returns and liturgy guidance for clergy can be found here.
