Pastor Appreciation

This is a prayer that I wrote for my own pastor.  You have permission to reprint this.


A SHEPHERD’S CALL

A SHEPHERD’S CALL I’VE GIVEN YOU.

THERE IS A WORK THAT I’VE CALLED YOU TO.

THE LOST, THE HURT, THE BRUISED, THE TORN;

THOSE WHO FEEL SO FORLORN.

THESE ARE THE SHEEP I’VE GIVEN YOU

TO CARE AND NURTURE AND SEE THEM THROUGH

TO KEEP THEM SAFE WITHIN THE FOLD

AND TO TELL THAT STORY OLD

ABOUT THE ONE WHO LOVES THEM SO

WHOSE BLOOD WAS SHED SO THEY COULD KNOW

THE CARE THE FATHER DOES BESTOW

SO WITH THE STAFF AND CROOK YOU GUIDE

FAITHFULLY SERVING AT MY SIDE

MY HEART IS PLEASED WITH WHAT I SEE

A MAN OF GOD WHO LIVES FOR ME.
