Almighty and everliving God, source of all wisdom and understanding, be present with those who take counsel for the renewal and mission of your Church at the 81st General Convention of The Episcopal Church, to be called to order on Sunday. Teach us in all things to seek first your honor and glory. Guide us to perceive what is right, and grant us both the courage to pursue it and the grace to accomplish it. And protect all who travel to Louisville this week and weekend, especially those from the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

— Book of Common Prayer
