A Prayer for Pastors, Part 9
January 8, 2010
After a brief hiatus -- okay, it has been eight months -- I return to Dr. Ridding's litany for pastors:
"From weariness in continuing struggles, from despondency in failure and disappointment, from over-burdened sense of unworthiness, from morbid fancies of imaginary back-slidings, raise us to a lively hope and trust in thy presence and mercy; and from all exaggerated fears and vexations;
Save us and help us, we humbly beseech thee, O Lord."
