Prayer for Our New Bishops

O God, eternal Shepherd,
who, governing your flock with watchful care, choose to join Jeffrey and James, your servants and priests, to the College of Bishops,
grant that by their holiness of life
they may everywhere prove to be true witnesses to Christ.
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
