Please join in prayer for upcoming UK Synods

The Church of England is divided into two Provinces, Canterbury and York, each ruled by an Archbishop. The Archbishop of Canterbury is the spiritual head of the Anglican Communion (Wikipedia here), making the Archbishop of York the number two guy in the Church of England, number three if you count the Queen.

The Anglo-Catholic reports that this week in each province there will be a synod. They are asking for prayers:

These Synods, occurring as they will between the recent General Synod of the Church of England and the National Assembly of Forward in Faith are of tremendous importance as our Anglican people consider their possible future in a personal ordinariate in the Catholic Church. I would ask all of the readers of The Anglo-Catholic to keep the clergy attendees in their prayers!
An update was added:

Would you also all pray for the Ebbsfleet Lay Conference on Saturday 25th September? Representatives of the laity will be meeting to discern the way forward in relation to the Ordinariate proposal.
Please add them to your prayers as they continue to struggle with the ramifications of recent votes in the Church of England. May the Holy Ghost be present with them, comfort and guide them in their journey, wherever it may lead.
