Martin Luther’s Prayer as Pastor

Posted by joelbyer on April 18, 2010

“Lord God, You have appointed me to be a pastor in Your Church.

You see how unfit I am to undertake this great and difficult office,
and were it not for Your help,
I would long since have ruined it all.
Therefore I cry unto You;
I will assuredly apply my mouth and my heart to Your service.
I desire to teach the people,
and I myself would learn ever more and diligently to meditate upon Your Word.
Use me as Your instrument,
only do not forsake me,
for if I am left alone I shall easily bring it all to destruction. Amen. ”

h/t Jon Earls
