We give thanks to you, Oh God,
because you gave us pastors.
We want to see you, Lord,
through our pastors.
Take us in your hands,
to show that Christ is the Truth,
Christ is the Life,
Christ is the Way.
We ask that they might know
how to do the work of evangelists.
That they might have wisdom to correct,
and the sensibility to comfort.
That they may be able
to ask forgiveness for their mistakes,
on Jesus' power, for their strength.
Sanctify them, Father,
so that this model
will be an incentive to Your flock,
and all of us together will radiate
the beauty of Evangelism.
This we ask
for Jesus' sake,
