Council of Bishops: To the people of The United Methodist Church
The Council of Bishops sent this letter to the people of The United Methodist Church following the 2016 General Conference.
New prayers are released each day. You can pick up a free copy of the prayer booklet at COB OCUIR's booth (#0159). Also available in Spanish, French and Portuguese.
This prayer booklet comes to you from the Council of Bishops Office of Christian Unity and Interreligious Relationships (OCUIR) of The United Methodist Church. As United Methodist delegates prepare and gather from all across God's creation, this booklet serves as a reminder our sister and brother Christians are praying for us and for our deliberations. What follows are prayers for you to use for the 17 days around and during the General Conference. They are offered on your behalf from leaders in other denominations and leaders of ecumenical organizations, all praying God will bless our time together and use it to further God's Kingdom. In the spirit of unity, may we each lift up these prayers as we conference, listen, speak and engage with each other, in the name of Christ.
