Eternal Father, God of love and peace, we praise and thank you for the gift of our diocese and all the abundant natural and spiritual resources bestowed upon us. In your loving kindness, forgive us all the wrongs we have done. May this diocese continue to grow in unity, love of you and all humanity. Grant to us Lord your divine inspiration and strength to work for our salvation and material well-being.
Provide for us with dedicated clergy, religious and laity to enable us realize your kingdom. Bless all the faithful in this diocese, reward all the missionaries and those who have empowered us to do your work more effectively. Let your peace and progress reign in the Niger Delta.
May all our life and service give you glory through Christ our Lord. Amen
