Bishop Karen Oliveto
Loving God, I lift up Bishop Karen Oliveto, a faithful servant of the church, and those within the United Methodist Church who elected and consecrated her to that position. I lift up all LGBTQ members of the UMC, especially those ordained to ministry. Make Your gracious presence keenly felt as they face discrimination and insult. Surround them with Your blessing. Let Your fierce love for each of them be known. Amen.
