Pastor Blessing Prayer

by Paul Berchtold

In prayer today, Lord, we uplift,
Thank you for your special gift,
A pastor for our flock to feed,
To plant your Word as holy seed.
Lord, you’re good shepherd over all,
Thank you for your special call,
On this anniversary day,
Bless our shepherd in every way,
Grant our pastor a shepherd’s heart,
Help each of us to do our part,
So we be worthy, your chosen flock,
Firmly founded on Christ the Rock.
Grant our pastor many days,
Bless him, Lord, in many ways.
May his work be ever fruitful,
For which we, Lord, are most grateful.
May our pastor be faithful, Lord,
To receive from you, eternal reward,
Safe in heaven, safe with you,
May all your flock rejoice anew. Amen.

Poem About Pastors

by Cheryl Lamont

God surveyed all His creation,
Looking from His Heavenly Throne
“They hurry, scurry and run about,
With agendas of their own.
I call and compel them,
To come and sup with Me
But no longer are they hungry,
They’re too busy, don’t you see.
My children whom I’ve called,
Once had fire in their soul

The Smiles Within My Heart

This pastor anniversary poem was specifically written for a pastor’s 15th anniversary at the author’s church.

If my smile is only for a moment,
When things are going right.
What good is such a fading thing?
With such a fickle plight?
The feature that I long for,
Is like a fine piece of art.
One that truly shows the hope,
That exists in my heart.
A picture that is so amazing,
Words cannot define.
There is a healthy dose of compassion,
At the center of it’s design.
But a smile is all I really have,
That can show in just a spark.
The feelings that I hold inside,
The real emotions of my heart.
So with this in mind, I must be sure,
To maintain a joyful grin.
For you never know just who is watching,
Or who is looking in.
For others will judge me by the way,
I react when things go wrong.
They will be focusing on the words of my lips,
Be it a sound of sorrow or a joyful song.
A smile will show my inner truth,
If in hard times it remains.
But the lack of a grin can display,
A heart full of disdain.
This is why I fill my life with God.
For He protects my world from the dark.
And allows the light to shine,
From the smile within my heart.

Pastoral Perspective

By Tom Mulhern

Pastor, pastor, what do you see
When you look out on your anniversary?
Do you see sinners who need to be saved
Or a parking lot that needs to be paved?
Do you see youth who need to be guided
Or a building that needs roofed and sided?
Do you see a choir singing in praise
Or deacons who forgot to give you a raise?
Sublime and petty, it’s all there to see
And we lift it all up on your anniversary.

What Are Your Pastor Like In Your Heart

The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof,
The world and those who dwell therein,
For he has founded it upon the seasand established it upon the rivers.
Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord?
And who shall stand in his holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
Who does not lift up his soul to what is falseand does not swear deceitfully.
He will receive blessing from the Lordand righteousness from the God of his salvation.
Such is the generation of those who seek him,
Who seek the face of the God of Jacob. Selah
Lift up your heads,
O gates!
And be lifted up,
O ancient doors,
That the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
The Lord,
Strong and mighty,
The Lord, mighty in battle!
Lift up your heads,
O gates!
And lift them up,
O ancient doors,
That the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
The Lord of hosts,
He is the King of glory

God of grace and God of glory, on this the 15-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11, grant us the wisdom to remember the lessons from that tragic day that make us more Christ-like. Drive away from us any vengeful urges, any hate-filled sentiment, any whisper from within or without that goads us to return evil for evil.

As we look back and recall where we were, who was with us and how we felt that fateful day, may those vivid memories compel us to acts of kindness, words of love and demonstrations of community. May the myriad of images of helpers – firefighters, police officers, pastors, office workers, ordinary citizens – be the icons that inspire us to be helpers, too. May texts and voicemails of “I love you” and “You are everything to me” assure us that love always has the last word, but that we should never wait to say it.

As the world still heaves with violence and war seems to never end, assure us, Prince of Peace, that ultimately crying and mourning will be no more. In the midst of suffering, our own and that of the world, speak again, Creator God, your performative Word of life and its goodness.

We pray for those whose lives were forever changed on September 11, 2001. Grant comfort to those who grieve. Strengthen those who struggle with questions that remain unanswered. Assure those who worry that they should have said or done something differently that you gather up all the fragments of our lives, bless and use them in ways that nourish.

We thank you, Lord of all, for the people who every day put their lives in danger in order to protect and serve others. We pray for all first responders, for medical personnel, police officers, firefighters and others who never know what a shift at work will bring on any given day. Grant them wisdom, courage and rest.

As we consider that fall day 15 years ago, grant us the ability to cling to the examples of goodness that emerged out of the horror: strangers banding together to thwart more carnage, people lining up to donate blood, congregations opening their doors to offer respite for anyone and everyone, people offering comfort and care to those they knew and those they’d never met. May these acts of mercy emulated in our lives be the ripple that reverberates through history, revealing your sure power to bring redemption, reconciliation and resurrection out of the depths of death and despair.

We are grateful for the new life born since the attacks 15 years ago – for those beloved children who don’t remember that day. We give thanks for the saints who were with us then, but have since gone on to eternal life.

When we mark anniversaries of sorrow, corporately or alone, may they be occasions to discern what truly matters, let go of what really doesn’t and recognize your grace, Almighty God, that pervades it all.

In the name of Jesus, the light of the world, the Prince of Peace, the Good Shepherd, our friend and our helper, we pray. Amen.
