I forgot to pray for rain in the pastoral prayer Sunday. It's dry as a dust pit here in the deep South and we need a soaker. The cattle are thirsty in the fields. Plants are distressed.
I prayed without notes except the scribbled requests for healing and care I wrote as the congregation spoke up.
After all my preparation for Easter Sunday, I did not have a pastoral prayer ready. Part of the problem was the worship bulletin did not list the prayers of the people. The secretary is an airy kind of gal.*
Do you write out your pastoral prayer?
Just wondering. And, we need rain.
*Secretary looks a great deal like me. Sounds like me, too.
