we humbly ask you to be with the Northeastern Jurisdictional Conference of The United Methodist Church, assembling next week in Harrisburg.
Save them from all error, ignorance, pride, and prejudice;
grant a special blessing upon the delegation from Western Pennsylvania, especially our brother Eric Park, who has been nominated to be consecrated to the episcopacy;
and out of your great mercy direct, sanctify, and govern the entire Conference in their work, by the mighty power of the Holy Spirit, that the Gospel of Christ may be truly preached, truly received, and truly followed, in all places, to the destruction of the kingdom of sin, Satan, and death;
till at length the whole of your dispersed sheep, being gathered into one fold, shall become partakers of everlasting life;
through the merits and death of Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord. Amen.
