Prayer for Pastors and Theologians

March 19, 2008

From the Brotherhood Prayer Book, weekday collect for Tuesday (pg. 276, 1st edition):

O Lord give us shepherds according to thine own heart and teachers of righteousness: Take not from their mouths the word of truth, so that they would feed us with doctrine and wisdom.

Rejoice the soul of thy servants:

And strengthen them with thy power.

Let us pray. Almighty and gracious God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hast commanded us to pray that Thou wouldest send forth laborers into Thy harvest, of Thine infinite mercy give us true teachers and ministers of Thy Word and put Thy saving Gospel in their hearts and on their lips that they may truly fulfill Thy command and preaching nothing contrary to Thy holy Word, that we, being warned, instructed, nurtured, comforted, and strengthened by Thy heavenly Word, may do those things which are well-pleasing to Thee and profitable to us; through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with Thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

Amen.
