Prayers for Pastors

When we cannot fix it (a prayer for pastors)

Holy One,

When we cannot fix it,
but can only love,
help us to show up
and represent on Your behalf.

When flood waters have
risen, then receded,
leaving damage and ruin,
send us both to lift and listen.

When people fall
from heights, from favor,
from grace, equip us
to show your mercy.

When little ones are lost,
their stories unthinkable,
inhuman cruelty prevailing,
help us show that You care.

When we cannot fix it,
but can only love,
help us to show up
and represent on Your behalf.
