The Most Rev. Michael Curry’s nine-year term as presiding bishop concludes Oct. 31, 2024.

The Joint Nominating Committee for the Election of the Presiding Bishop asks the church to join it in prayer for the discernment and election process. It has offered the following prayer, which members hope Episcopalians will use in the Prayers of the People during worship, as well as in their personal devotions:

Almighty God, source of all wisdom and understanding: Look graciously on your church, and so guide the hearts and minds of those who will choose our next presiding bishop, that we may receive a faithful pastor who will care for all of your people, equip us for our ministries, and proclaim your word to us and to the world, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
