A Prayer for Pastors


By the power of the Holy Spirit enable us, whom you have appointed to this ministry of yours at all times and in all places to call on you without condemnation and without offense, with the testimony of a pure conscience; that you may hear us and be merciful to us, after the multitude of thy great goodness, for all glory, honor and worship befits you, the Father, the Son, and your Holy Spirit, now and for ever, and world without end.  Amen. 

John Chrysostom
