Worship Resources Epiphany 3A, Mt. 4:12-23

Pastoral Prayer

Jesus, our brother, leader, and friend–

Every moment you draw close. You call us away from our chattering minds. You call us out from our greed, anger, and ignorance. You invite us to expand our hearts and broaden our vision. Too often we’re stuck in doubt, confusion, and fear. Teach us to drop our nets. Teach us to drop our self-concern. Teach us to drop our self-defeating stories of the way things are. Teach us to drop our self-fulfilling prophecies of the way things always will be.
