Worship at KUC : Pastoral Prayers

The Pastoral Prayer is a prayer offered by a minister in the course of a service of worship for and on behalf of the congregation. Traditionally, the Pastoral prayer has occupied a prominent place in the period of prayers in the Sunday worship service. Here at KUC, it is usually prayed by the liturgist after the first scripture reading. The Pastoral Prayer is the means to an end: to the worshiper’s coming into the actual presence of God.

Just when it feels as though the world is coming apart, smoke erupts from the earth and the ground moved, disturbing life in near and far, we are reminded, we are not in control.


Pastoral Prayer — April 19, 2015

We give you thanks that in their young lives there has never been a day when your Spirit has not been working, sometimes quietly and invisibly, other times more profoundly, but always guiding and prodding them to that higher, nobler life they have discovered in Jesus.
