Pastoral Prayer: Easter 6 B

Here’s a pastoral prayer for the sixth Sunday of Easter from Bishop Telmor Sartison.

Pastoral Prayer
(inspired by Psalm 98, John 15:9-17)

God of might and mercy, you have sung a new song for us in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Teach us to sing our own life, our witness to Christ, revealing to the world what you have done and desire in Christ Jesus.

God of the risen Jesus, hear our prayer.
We come, O God, as children. Give us the grace to serve you with the gifts and skills you have first given us. Bless especially those who serve as chaplains and caregivers in all corners of life. Give them the grace and power of your own love that they might bless all with whom they work and live.

God of the risen Jesus, hear our prayer.
