From the encylical of the Assembly of Bishop's  Chairman, Archbishop Demetrios, comes this prayer in connection with this weeks annual meetings of the Assembly.
" O Lord of Heaven and Earth and of all who dwell therein, we beseech You on behalf of all the Hierarchs of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America who gather in solemn convocation. Make their travel to and from their meeting safe and sound; direct their deliberations to the glory of Your Holy Name and the benefit of Your Holy Church; grant unto them a fraternal spirit founded in Your love and Your grace, that in all they do and say, they may bring all honor, praise and glory to Your Name, of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen."

Amen. Lord, have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
