The 2016 Diocesan Calendar of Intercession

The 2016 Calendar of Intercession of The Episcopal Diocese of New York, also known as the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, invites your prayers for the mission of the diocese as realized in many ministry settings through the diverse vocations of ordained and lay leaders.

Individuals and those gathering for public worship may pray each day for the congregation, organization or individual for whom intercession is requested. Congregations may also adapt this cycle of prayer for Sunday worship, including the week’s intercessions in the Prayers of the People.

By our prayers for one another, we ask for God’s grace and power to sustain and enliven our ministries, and we become more deeply aware of one another’s gifts and contributions, fostering a shared understanding of our diocese’s common life and mission.
