PRAYER

Almighty God, cleanse my heart and my lips that I may worthily proclaim your Word;
bless my efforts to prepare, that I may meditate on it, understand it better, and proclaim it faithfully to your people.
Surround my ministry with your presence, that I may carefully perform the task entrusted to me,
preach Jesus Christ to others, announce your Word properly, watch it grow in the hearts of listeners and give glory to you,
Father, through your Son and in the Holy Spirit.
Amen.
