We pray today, Oh God Almighty
That preachers stay involved
With reading scripture, praying oft,
And therefore be resolved
To stay the path and not turn back
From all that has been given
Them to guard and preach and tell
So men can go to Heaven.
Give strength to them, Oh Lord Divine
And give them what they need
To preach the word and not withhold
The everlasting seed.
Give them joy in God’s own word
And fill them with your love.
Show them how to preach with power
The truths down from above.
And if we can, who older be,
Encourage them to stay
In God’s firm word and in His will
And never stray away.
