A Prayer For Those Who Serve

Gracious God, whose Son came not to be served, but to serve: This day before the feast day of St. Philip, we pray for all those who serve you in ministries that feed and clothe the poor, empower and advocate for the powerless, comfort the sick and grieving, administer other works of the Church that act as your hands and heart in the world and assist priests and pastors in their duties. Give your servants compassion, enthusiasm, insight and wisdom, that their work may glorify you as it helps others. In Jesus' name, Amen.
