The Locking Deanery Prayer:

Heavenly Father,
On the coast and in the countryside,
in the town and in the village,
we, your people, commit ourselves to
living and telling the story of Jesus.
You know our minds, what’s on our hearts,
our plans and our dreams.
Send your Holy Spirit and inspire our work,
that young and old, churched and unchurched,
may grow in the knowledge and love
of your Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Amen.
