Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts, who of your divine providence has appointed various orders in your Church: Give your grace, we humbly beseech you, to the Revs. Susanne Wright-Nava, Stacey Forte-Dupre, Tim Hartley, Brian Tucker, and Ryan Macias, called to be ordained as priests this morning by Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry at St. John’s Cathedral; and so fill them with the truth of your doctrine and clothe them with holiness of life, that they may faithfully serve before you, to the glory of your great Name and for the benefit of your holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
