A Prayer For Preaching

O Holy God, yet again you call me to proclaim the Good News of your Son yet I am unworthy of such a task.

Distrust dances with faith in my soul and sometimes I can’t tell who’s leading.

I am filled with every kind of sin,  “I have not loved you with my whole heart, I have not loved my neighbor a myself” which is the polite way of saying I screw up sooooo much; I’m in need of your grace.

I am well trained, but unprepared to be your voice. What I really need is to hear these words myself.

May your words in me have power to create faith, turn us all from sin, console the heart, and send us forth with joy.

May you give me Good News to speak.  

O Lord, come to me that your words flow freely from my mouth.

Amen.
