A Prayer for Church Communicators

A Prayer for Church Communicators

July 10, 2019 by

We often offer advice and tips and resources for church communicators. But sometimes we just need a prayer. 

O God of words, images, and sounds,
Who created the world and sustains it still,
Give hearts of compassion to all who work in the ministry of church communications.

In our writing, help us be wise.
In our posting, help us be kind.
In our sharing, help us be thoughtful.
In all things, help us remember your call to love you,
and to love our neighbor as we love ourselves.

O God of words, images, and sounds,
Who created the world and sustains it still,
Give clarity of vision to all who work in the ministry of church communications.

In our writing, help us be honest.
In our posting, help us be just.
In our sharing, help us be truthful.
In all things, help us remember that you are
the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

O God of words, images, and sounds,
Who created the world and sustains it still,
We thank you for the work you have given us to do.

Help us to use our skills to reach your world with your love.

In the Name of the Risen One,
Amen.

If a formal prayer isn’t your thing, you can always go with the only three prayers Anne Lamott needs:  Help, thanks, and wow. Seriously though, if this kind of prayerful encouragement is what you need, you could probably go for a pep talk.
