Prayers for Pastors

Dole out a measure (a prayer for pastors)

When life distracts
from our work for you,
in your mercy, Lord,
hear our prayer.

When a wakeful child
or a sick pet
or an anxious dream
disturbs our night,
when fear of what
the world is coming to
invades our minds
help us, even so,
to serve you well.

And when we cannot,
when our best
is simply showing up,
help us to believe
in the grace
you give.

Dole out a measure
of grace to those who
will listen when we
teach
preach
and pray.

Dole out a measure
to us.

In Christ’s name. Amen.
