Cool us off, Lord (a prayer for pastors)

Cool us offIn the heat of the moment
when words spoken
or glances exchanged
forecast regret and pain,
cool us off, Lord.

In the heat of the season
when statuses composed
or memes shared
evoke strong responses,
cool us off, Lord.

In the heat of the day
when power outages
or overworked a/c
add to the stress,
cool us off, Lord.

In the heat of a fever
when passion threatens,
or illness compromises
and we are undone,
cool us off, Lord.

Pour down the blessed cool
of soothed spirits,
of righteous reason,
of promised peace,
of healed hearts.

Cool us off, Lord.
