Prayers for Pastors, Reflectionary

What the world needs to hear (a prayer for pastors)

Dear God,

We have studied,Jesus
poring over our Bibles,
parsing ancient languages,
picking through commentaries,
penciling notes in the margins,
pondering your meaning.
picking out the words
the world needs to hear:
grace, mercy, justice.

Jesus.

Bless the work we have done,
and the words we will say,
and all those who will hear them,
we ask in His name. Amen.
