  1. I have posted an announcement of your consecration on Anglicans Ablaze along with these prayers from The Consecration of an Archbishop or Bishop from An American Prayer Book (2009):

    Almighty God, giver of all good things, by your Holy Spirit you have appointed various orders of ministry in your church. Look in mercy on this your servant now called to the work and ministry of a bishop. Fill him with the truth of your word and clothe him with holiness of life so that, both by word and deed, he may faithfully serve you in this office, to the glory of your name, and the building up and well-governing of your church; through the merits of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever. AMEN.

    Almighty God and heavenly Father, by your infinite love and goodness you gave your only and most dearly beloved Son Jesus Christ to be our redeemer and the author of everlasting life. After he had secured our redemption by his death and ascended into heaven, he poured down his gifts abundantly on men, making some apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some teachers and pastors, to the building up and perfecting of his Church; Grant, O Lord, we implore you, to this your servant such grace, that he may be always ready to spread abroad your Gospel, the good news of reconciliation with you; and to use the authority given him, not for destruction, but for salvation; not to hurt, but to help: so that as a faithful and wise servant set over your household, giving his fellow servants their food at the proper time, he may at the last be received into your everlasting joy through Jesus Christ our Lord who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. AMEN.

    Most merciful Father, we ask you to send upon this your servant your heavenly blessing. So clothe him with your Holy Spirit that he, preaching your Word, may not only be zealous to admonish, entreat, and rebuke with all patience and sound teaching; but also may to those who believe be a wholesome example, in word, in behavior, in love, in faith, in chastity, and in purity; that faithfully fulfilling his ministry, he may at the last receive the crown of righteousness laid up by the Lord the righteous Judge, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. AMEN.

    Go before us, Lord, with your most gracious favor and further us with your continual help so that in all our works, begun, continued and ended in you, we may glorify your holy name and at the end by your mercy obtain eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.
