A Prayer for Worship Leaders

Lord, protect me from me. What I mean Lord is that this week has been so filled with fear and cynicism, that I don’t believe anyone. I don’t believe the candidates. I don’t believe the elected leaders. I don’t believe the press and the commentators. A creeping skepticism is washing over me that makes me crusty and impenetrable. 

Lord, I can’t lead in worship, sing, pray, preach, teach and witness if I don’t believe your people. I can’t lead the body if I distrust the leaders. And I know the answer is not a self-manufactured, doe-eyed innocence. Bring me back into your holy presence where all I see is you, and all I hear is your word and your voice. Give me the courage to be gentle and the patience to listen. Implant in me your words for your people in your church. Amen
