Prayer for a Bishop

God, eternal shepherd, you tend your Church in many ways and rule us with love.  You have chosen your servant,  N., to be a shepherd of your flock.  Give him a spirit of courage and right judgement, a spirit of knowledge and love.  By governing with fidelity those entrusted to his care, may he build your Church as a sign of salvation for the world.
