Sunday 28th October 2018: We pray for God’s blessing on Guy and Jebs Bridgewater as they leave us to start their new lives at Bath Abbey

Guy and Jebs: We lay our hands on you and pray in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.   Amen.    May you take with you the thanks and the prayers of the people in Horsham for your ministry here among us.
We thank you, Lord, for their wisdom and humility, for their thoughtfulness of others, for their dignity in worship and their faithfulness to the gospel.  As they leave us: may they leave behind any regrets they have, any business left unfinished, any anxieties that properly belong to us.  May they take with them the lessons they have learned here, and the love of the people they have served.  And for the future Lord, grant them wisdom, grant them courage, grant them a strong faith in your good will and your purposes for them, O God, most high, in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Guy and Jebs: Now by God’s Holy anointing and by God’s great love for you, may Almighty God in His great power guard and protect you.   May the Holy Spirit rest upon you to give you comfort and strength in time of need and guidance in the fulfillment of God’s will.  And may the Lord who saved you, bless your going out, and  your coming in, from this time forth, and for ever.  Amen.
