One of those days (a prayer for pastors)

When the night was short
due to wakeful children,
Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayers.

When we get to church
and the printer isn’t working,
Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayers.

When the cell phone rings
and it’s the funeral home again,
Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayers.

You give us strength, O Lord,
for life’s minor collisions
and predictable snafus,
and undesired inevitabilities.

We thank you for it.

Amen.

 

I would love to know your thoughts.
