Here is the text of the bishop’s prayer:
Palm Sunday Prayer
O Trinity of Love, holy and one, look down on us,
the one and the many, the many and the one.
We give thanks that you have made us
one United Methodist Church.
O Trinity of life, Generous Spirit, we ask that you bless this 2016 General Conference.
Bless this church with the life-giving Spirit of Jesus.
Where it is in error, direct it.
Where in anything it is amiss, reform it.
Where it is right, establish it.
Where it is in want, provide for it.
Where it is divided, reunite it.
We pray that the General Conference of the United Methodist Church
will grow in grace, be built up in love, and enlarge its service
and increase its wisdom, faith, charity and power.
Then, Holy Spirit, send us out into the world
to proclaim boldly the coming of your kingdom.
Bestow upon us a swift compassion to suffering and a white-hot desire
to proclaim the gospel of our Lord, and an unfailing commitment
to bring about God’s reign on earth as it is in heaven.
We pray this in the name of the Trinity, Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
